Joe Watkins

Researcher

I joined IOD PARC at the beginning of 2020, as part of the Supporting Points of Change in the Aid System Portfolio Team. I have a strong interest in migration and in particular, the nexus between climate change, migration and development. My previous work in this thematic area has included research on climate-induced migration in the Pacific region, examining migration as a climate change adaptation strategy, evaluating community participation in the process and subsequent outcomes on livelihoods, social cohesion and aversion of forced migration.
