Ben’s recent work includes visualising climate adaptation networks through the CAMA project, the development and testing of e-learning modules in Indonesia and the Philippines, and training in climate analysis and vulnerability assessments in the C3D+ project. Previous projects included supporting Sida’s helpdesks by providing national¬† overviews of climate change impacts as well as institutional and policy analysis and recommendations on areas to focus Swedish development cooperation.

Ben is currently finishing a PhD at King’s College London looking at the way that river restoration can deliver both ecological and social benefits. In particular there is a focus on the impact of catchment land-use on river status under the Water Framework Directive, and the effectiveness of urban restoration projects.
