Bath Spa-supported Climate Change book received by chapter authors in Namibia

Posted on March 2, 2022

Sian Sullivan, Professor of Environment and Culture, at Bath Spa University has been able to take hard copies of Negotiating Climate Change in Crisis to chapter authors from the University of Namibia.

Dr Selma Lendelvo (centre), Dr Romie Nghitevelekwa (left) and Mechtilde Pinto (right) contributed a chapter entitled ‘Gendered Climate Change-Induced Human-Wildlife Conflicts (HWC) amidst COVID-19 in the Erongo Region, Namibia’. This was one of three chapters in a book section exploring climate change experience and understanding in Namibia, a country vulnerable to small shifts in rainfall and temperature.

Negotiating Climate Change in Crisis is edited by Sian with Steffen Böhm, Professor in Organisation & Sustainability at the University of Exeter. Published in advance of COP26 last year with support from Bath Spa’s HEQR seed fund, the book is fully open access and has now been downloaded in multiple countries across the world.

Sian is currently in Namibia for field and archive research for the AHRC-DFG funded project Etosha-Kunene Histories, a collaboration between BSU, the University of Namibia and the University of Cologne.
