Article
Full-text available
Regional organisations play a central role in coordinating regional climate change adaptation responses across small island developing states, 58 countries that are particularly vulnerable to climate change and its impacts. The effectiveness of these organisations in coordinating adaptation efforts is underexplored in the academic literature, and t...
Article
Full-text available
This research examines the impact of three coordination dimensions on health sector adaptation to climate change in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta: cross-scale, cross-sectoral, and cross-boundary. While tasks are divided up between government ministries and departments in Vietnam, there is little collaboration on issues that span mandates. Similarly,...
Article
Full-text available
Background: The role played by regional organisations in climate change adaptation and health is growing in Southeast Asia, with the Asian Development Bank and the Asia-Pacific Regional Forum on Health and Environment both supporting health and adaptation initiatives. There is, however, a lack of empirical research on the value that regional organ...
Article
Full-text available
Because generating electricity significantly contributes to global greenhouse gas emissions, meeting the 2015 Paris Agreement and 2021 Glasgow Climate Pact requires rapidly transitioning to zero or low-emissions electricity grids. Though the installation of renewables-based generators—predominantly wind and solar-based systems—is accelerating world...
Article
Full-text available
Globally, negative climate change impacts on public health are addressed using a variety of managerial approaches. In donor-funded initiatives, project-based approaches dominate, however an emerging literature questions the effectiveness of the classical project management (CPM) style for complex project environments. Building on this emerging lite...
Article
Full-text available
Pacific regional organisations focusing on climate change have overlapping adaptation-related mandates. With the growing importance of regional organisations in supplying financial and technical resources for climate adaptation in small island developing states, it is important to understand how well these supranational organisations work together...
Article
Full-text available
Myanmar is a least developed country transitioning to democracy but has many holdovers from its recent military-controlled past. At the same time, extreme climate-related weather events are undermining the health ministry’s capacity to support people to live long and full lives. This paper describes existing climate change-related challenges confro...
Chapter
Full-text available
The purpose of this chapter is to explore governance limits to climate change adaptation in Cambodia’s health sector, as well as possibilities for change. Poor coordination across government sectors and a failure to prioritise human resource development result in climate change adaptation limits. This chapter explores these two areas of adaptation...
Thesis
Full-text available
Around the world climate change is already impacting on health, via more frequent and intense extreme weather events, as well as by altering the prevalence and distributions of vector- and water-borne diseases. The high and rapidly growing population in Southeast Asia is heavily reliant on agriculture for livelihoods, which makes it vulnerable to c...
Article
Full-text available
The purpose of this article is to promote debate about the linkages between volunteer tourism and international development, and to argue that volunteer tourism should be assessed as a development activity. Most volunteer tourism activities involve participants from developed countries traveling to volunteer in developing nations, with volunteers l...
