About Us

Our international team of researchers are exploring experiences of climate change impact, and coping and adaptation strategies, in diverse island communities in Orkney, Mauritius and Fiji.

We seek to understand the unique needs and local priorities of individual islands, identify common challenges and explore opportunities to share solutions across island communities in very different parts of the world. This research is supported by the Natural Environment Research Council.
