Dr. James D. Ford is an assistant professor in geography at McGill University where he leads the Climate Change Adaptation Research Group. He is particularly interested in how climate change interacts with human systems, and has worked extensively in the Arctic with Inuit communities, and has projects underway in Africa and Asia. Dr Ford co-leads the Indigenous Health Adaptation to Climate Change (IHACC) project – a 5 year initiative working with Indigenous communities in the Arctic, Peru and Uganda, to develop sustainable adaptations to reduce climate change related health vulnerabilities. His research is also developing novel approaches to track climate change adaptation at global and regional levels, pioneering systematic review approaches in an environmental change context, and engaging with adaptation policy debates at multiple levels.
