Workshop on Climate Change Governance in the Asia-Pacific Region: Agency, Accountability and Adaptiveness
Organized by the Climate and Environmental Governance Network (cegnet.anu.edu.au) and the Earth System Governance Project (earthsystemgovernance.org) Sponsored by the Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (apn-gcr.org) and the College of Asia and the Pacific, ANU (asiapacific.anu.edu.au)
Workshop aims:
- To bring together early career researchers (late-stage PhDs and academics that completed their PhD no more than 5 years ago) from the Asia-Pacific Region to discuss the challenges of climate governance;
- To connect senior researchers and eminent scholars based in Australia with early career researchers in the wider region;
- To produce an edited volume addressing the key themes of the workshop. Who should apply? The workshop is designed for early-career researchers (ECRs) in the Asia-Pacific Region working in the field of climate change governance. ECRs from Australia and from low income country members of the Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN) are particularly encouraged to apply. APN low income member countries are Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, Fiji and all Pacific Island States, India, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam (http://www.apn.gr.jp/newAPN/indexe.htm).
Application Process Please submit the following: CV; Abstract (300-500 words) of a potential chapter based on one or more of the workshop themes for the edited volume resulting from this workshop (note that acceptance of an abstract for the workshop does not automatically result in inclusion of the chapter in the edited volume); Writing sample (e.g. journal article or chapter of thesis)
The organizers expect to be able to provide funding for up to 10 participants from outside Australia, covering travel expenses, accommodation and full catering. Logistical support will be provided for travel arrangements and visa applications. Some funding may be available to support successful applicants based within Australia, although participants will be encouraged to also seek funding from their home institutions.
