Job title:

Lecturer in International Development

Area of work:

My research focuses on mitigation, adaptation, including disaster risks and response pathways.

What are the big issues that COP28 needs to address? What are your hopes for the negotiations?

There are issues to do with the realities of the loss and damage fund, global commitments and the way the Global South is caught in between.

What’s your message for world leaders at COP28?

This is yet another opportunity to show global leadership on shared problems.
