Special guest speaker: Dr. Julio C. Postigo, Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at Indiana University will be presenting the second webinar in the series Climate Change Adaptation. 

Dr. Postigo's over twenty years of experience encompasses research on human-environment interactions of small farmer communities, elaboration of policy recommendations, and a broad methodological expertise synthesizing quantitative and qualitative methods to connect the socio-cultural and natural sciences. His most recent work has focused on impacts of climatic and environmental changes on pastoralism. He is also investigating the drivers of local knowledge for weather forecasting among Andean farmers in Bolivia and Peru; the local perceptions of the impacts of climate change and economic development in the Arctic; and Cambodian farmers responses to changes in the hydrological pulse regime of the Mekong River.  

He is a lead author of the 6th IPCC report on climate change. He is the co-editor of Naturaleza y sociedad: Perspectivas socio-ecológicas sobre cambios globales en América Latina, and has recently published, among others, The Role of Social Institutions in Indigenous Andean Pastoralists’ Adaptation to Climate-Related Water Hazards; Multi-temporal Adaptations to Change in the Central Andes; and Outlook on Climate Change Adaptation in the Tropical Andes Mountains.
