Dr Anna Lukasiewicz

Doctor of Philosophy, Charles Sturt University, 2012
Research support

With a diverse education that includes international development, sustainability and water governance, Anna researches topics around the distribution of natural resources (including how decision-making processes are structured and stakeholder-decision maker interactions); water governance (including water management, climate change adaptation and stakeholder engagement); and natural hazard management (especially policy around disaster resilience).

She is particularly interested in how local communities participate in decision-making processes and how they can adapt to structural reforms and climate change.

Research interests

Anna works mainly at the interface of social justice and natural resource management. This includes:

  • Social justice (resource distribution, decision-making processes, the environment as a stakeholder, and stakeholder-decision-maker interactions)
  • Water governance (management, policy analysis, climate change adaptation, stakeholder engagement, and institutional analysis)
  • natural disaster management (policy and management in disaster preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery)
