CEP participating in workshop on climate change adaptation and natural hazards for the Austrian Climate Research Programme
On 5th July Dr Clare Twigger-Ross will be participating in a project workshop for Climate Change Adaptation and Protection from Natural Hazards: capacity building for people with a migration background in Austria. The project is part of the 8th Call Austrian Climate Research Programme and runs from 2016 for 34 months. It is led by the University of Natural Resource and Life Sciences, Vienna.
The project aims to explore the potential vulnerability and capacity of migrant groups in the context of Climate Change using a cross-analysis of several embedded case studies in Austria. Clare has been invited to share her experience in the area of flooding and climate change resilience, with a specific focus on approaches to researching groups who may be more vulnerable to negative impacts because of social factors.
