A qualified geographer, with an interest in interdisciplinary ‘solutions-oriented’ action research, Dr. Darryn McEvoy’s expertise covers climate risk assessment and adaptation, innovative adaptation practice (both institutions and technologies), institutional adaptive management (and adaptation as a process), vulnerability assessment, the building of local adaptive capacity, and the synergies and conflicts between the adaptation and mitigation agendas. Of particular interest is the translation of theory into practice, and highlighting the implications for climate risk management and decision-making (including both public and private actors).
