Climate Resilient Pathways

Supervisor contact


From 2015, a selection of undergraduate, Honours and/or Masters projects in Climate Change and Mitigation, may be undertaken at The Fenner School of Environment with appropriate supervisors from either the Fenner School and/or the Crawford School of Public Policy and joint supervision by Dr Michael Smith (ANU Climate Change Institute).

To date, research and policy have largely considered climate change adaptation and mitigation separately.   There is now however a growing interest in examining the commonalities between these two in order to improve the potential return on political and economic investment; achieve deeper de-carbonisation faster, and accelerate progress towards global development goals. 

These climate resilient pathways are development trajectories that combine adaptation and mitigation to realise the goal of sustainable development. 

Research is required at local, sub-national and national scales on past successes and failures to synthesise adaptation, mitigation, and development efforts and to identify potential opportunities for devising climate resilient pathways across a range of settings.
