I work for the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) within the Climate Change Group.I am currently working on the coordination of the GICBA initiative with SEI and IDS. It is a very exciting project and I look forward to seeing all of your placemarks on the Adaptation Layer. This new space will allow everyone to engage with those that are already working on CBA related projects and I hope provide a forum that enables everyone to share, learn and develop future ideas. Alongside this initiative I am also coordinating the development and climate days conference that takes place each year at the COP, the CBA conferences and lastly I am developing a research stream within the group that explores the climate change and security nexus.

I very much look forward to collaborating with you on this initiative.
