Overview

Neil Adger is Professor of Human Geography.

He teaches, supervises graduate students, and researches in the areas of environmental geography, ecological and institutional economics, and global environmental change. 

Neil is a ISI Highly Cited Researcher in the Social Sciences in 2015, 2016 and 2017, one of the few geographers whose work is widely cited across the disciplines. 

Neil led the chapter on Human Security and was a member of the core writing team for the Summary for Policy Makers for the Integovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report Working Group 2 published in final form in 2014.

He previously served as a Convening Lead Author for the 2007 Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change and in the Third Assessment Report in 2001. He also served as a Lead Author in the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment and continues to work extensively on ecosystem services and well-being.

In 2015 Neil acted as a Commissioner and author of the Lancet Commission Climate Health Commission, publishing ''Climate Change and Health 2015: Policy Responses to Protect Public Health' [free to dowload] arguing for urgent action on climate change to maintain and enhance well-being.

Neil is Chair of the Board of Directors of the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and serves on the International Scientific Advisory Committee of the Basque Centre for Climate Change in Bilbao. He is on the Editorial Board of  Global Environmental Change, having served as Editor from 2004-2013, Global SustainabilityAmbio and Ecology and Society.

His research has been supported by ESRC, NERC, EPSRC, National Institute for Health Research, UK Department for International Development, Department of Energy and Climate Change, Department of Environment Food and Rural Affairs, the Leverhulme Trust, the MacArthur Foundation and the EU.

Research

Research interests

My goal is to promote deep social science analysis of the challenges of global environmental change drawing on a range of social science theories, such as political economy as well as theories of decision-making and risk. I seek to promote theoretically-informed social science and develop strong empirical evidence in specific areas and to promote interdisciplinary dialogues on environmental challenges.
 

I have published articles that have been widely cited on adaptation to climate change; the nature and implications of vulnerability to climate change; contributions to resilience theory; ecological and institutional economics; and the political economy of the environment. Citations to articles can be followed though a profile on Google Scholar.

Research projects

Adaptation to climate change

The world is in the throes of confronting the reality of climate change. It has altered the landscape of risk and is likely to alter the economic and human geography of every part of the world in the coming decades. Hence I have sought to develop insights into the social processes that deal with these risks. Some of this work is published in a book, Adapting to Climate Change: Thresholds, Values, Governance resulting from five years of work as leader of the Adaptation Theme within the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. I have sought to elaborate how extreme events and risks interact to produce adaptation action, showing that the evolution of social contracts is a potential mechanism for such change, published in a paper in Nature Climate Change.

Sustainability, resilience and vulnerability of social-ecological systems

Resilience theories and applications across the natural and social sciences offer a significant potential to explain how change occurs in a globalizing and uncertain world. I collaborate with colleagues in the Resilience Alliance on research, and we organize the Exeter node of the Alliance, with Katrina Brown of the Environment and Sustainability Institute. We have applied resilience theories to assess whether present adaptation strategies to climate change promote system resilience, in a paper in WIREs Climate Change, and have sought to examine cultural dimensions to resilience and adaptation – with these papers in Global Environmental Politics and Nature Climate Change.

Migration in response to environmental change

One of the major responses to environmental change has been the movement of people, settlements and investments – the evidence is around us in how and where we live. Migration is as natural as breathing. I have contributed to the emerging reconsideration of migration and environmental change that seeks to refocus analysis and policy away from displacement (as one specific issue in migration-environment relations to a broader analysis of the role of mobility and migration in dealing with environmental change. Early work focused on resilience of migrants’ livelihoods, funded by the MacArthur Foundation, and published in Ambio. Recently I have been a member of the Lead Expert Group and author of the UK Foresight report, Migration and Global Environmental Change. Work in Bangladesh, as part of ESPA Deltas with Helen Adams seeks to examine the interaction of mobility with ecosystem services.
