Current projects actively under consideration
Professor Sisira Jayasuriya initiated a project on climate change and rice yields in India which was side-tracked after CDES got a grant to undertake the Victorian wheat project. We are planning to revive that project. A draft SSRN paper was done in 2018.
We sought DFAT funds to work on a project focused on small farmers and climate change in Eastern Indonesia/Timor, also involving Prof Glenn Denning (Columbia) and his colleague Prof Shiva Someshwar (Science Po and Columbia). Prof Denning is interested in pursuing the idea.
We are at the initial stages of preparing a collaborative project on strategies for Asian farmers to cope with climate change, exploring options for adaptation and emissions reduction.
