More about the speaker

Guy is a human geographer currently working on the project ‘Recasting the Disproportionate Impacts of Climate Change Extremes’ at Lund University (Sweden) Centre for Sustainability Studies.

In this project, he is exploring climate change loss and damage in collaboration with Indigenous peoples in Australia and the Pacific. He also examines internationally contentious issues, such as liability, responsibility and compensation.

Guy’s research seeks to further our understanding of loss and damage, both empirically and theoretically, by using an intersectional lens and transdisciplinary approaches. (Source: https://www.lucsus.lu.se/guy-jackson).
