Climate Change Resilience in Action
Wolfson College, Oxford
The Mokoro seminar, ‘Climate Change Resilience in Action’ took place at Wolfson College, Oxford on 21st June and marked Mokoro’s 40th Anniversary!
The focus of the seminar was on practical action steps towards climate change resilience, in particular, justice-based approaches that ensure no one is left behind.
We welcomed three close friends of Mokoro to speak at the event: Allison Anderson, an expert education policy and programming in crisis and recovery contexts and on climate change education for sustainable development; Geoff Payne, a housing and urban development consultant who has recently published a new book looking at how land and housing can be managed in a more socially and environmentally sustainable manner; and Marlène Buchy, an independent consultant who has worked extensively on natural resource management issues specialising in gender and social equity.
The seminar, chaired by Mokoro Principal Consultant Alta Fölscher and with an introduction provided by Mokoro Research Assistant Sarah Candy, explored issues of equality and vulnerability in the face of the climate crisis including case studies from the Philippines and Nepal.
Chair: Alta Fölscher
Speakers: Sarah Candy, Allison Anderson, Geoff Payne and Marlène Buchy
