Graham McDowell presents at the Mountains of our Future Earth conference

On October 7th, TRAC3 and CCARG member Graham McDowell presented at the Mountains of our Future Earth conference in Perth, Scotland.

This Future Earth affiliated event sought to advance understanding in three key Future Earth thematic areas: 1) Dynamics of the Planet (mountain systems focus), 2) Global Sustainable Development (UN Sustainable Development Goals focus), and 3) Transformations towards Sustainability.

Graham presented in a special session on ‘Generating knowledge for climate change adaptation’ where he discussed the methodological approach and findings from his paper in Climatic Change (co-authored with Ellie Stephenson and Dr. James Ford). He argued that formal systematic review methods provide a cogent basis for knowledge synthesis and tracking in the context of information needs related to rapidly changing high mountain socio-ecological systems.
