Developing a community of practice

LIDC is developing and supporting an emerging community of practice in climate change across our seven University of London institutions.

Member research crosses a wide range of disciplinary boundaries with input from social scientists, climate modellers to infectious disease specialists.

We explore climate both as a variable and as an embedded context important to the lives and livelihoods of vulnerable communities.

Our interests range from the fostering of a new episteme in global health ‘climate change syndemics’ to modelling the role of climate on social structures to understanding the behaviours important to mitigating risk and enhancing the resilience of farmers to climate impacts to understanding the role of climate on antimicrobial resistance.
