Keith Hyams awarded BA research funding on Indigenous Climate Adaptation

Keith Hyams has been awarded a British Academy International Challenges Research Project Grant for his project ‘Remedying Injustice in Indigenous Climate Adaptation Planning’. The project investigates ethical aspects of the relationship between indigenous communities, climate change, and adaptation policies. It asks how adaptation policies that integrate indigenous knowledge on climate adaptation can work to reduce the inequitable distribution of climate impacts on indigenous populations. The project will be undertaken in collaboration with the University of Makerere in Kampala, and Batwa Indigenous Communities in the South West of Uganda.
