Albert Salamanca

Albert is currently a Research Fellow at SEI where he is involved in a number of initiatives. He co-Leads the Transforming Governance Theme and conducts research on the intersection of flooding and migration and the social construction of risk in Laos as well as the political economy of water flow in Bangkok. Together with partners in Indonesia, he also works with farmers on the governance and management of the Bali Cultural Landscape, a World Heritage Site listed in 2012. He also edits the Small Islands and Climate Change initiative in weADAPT, an adaptation portal while advising SUMERNET on M&E and leading the action research component of the Mekong Partnership for the Environment. With the National University of Singapore, he is presently involved in designing a research project called “Southeast Asia and the lie of the land”, which looks at societal change using the dynamics of land ownership and land history as conceptual lenses.

Albert formerly managed the Regional Climate Change Adaptation Knowledge Platform (AKP) at SEI and has a PhD in Geography from Durham University (UK).
