Dr Douglas Bardsley is a Senior Lecturer in Geography, Environment and Population within the School of Social Sciences at Adelaide University, where he convenes the Graduate Programs in Environmental Policy and Management.

Trained as a social geographer, an educator and an agricultural scientist, Doug's research interests over the last 20 years have focused on environmental and agricultural risk management, links between conservation and development, and education for sustainable development.  Most of his research involves analysis and planning at the interface of social and environmental systems, with a focus on developing adaptation options to respond to climate change.

His research has included supporting climate change adaptation planning for the Adelaide-Mt Lofty Ranges and the Indigenous Alinytjara Wilurara natural resource management regions in South Australia; resilience analysis within agricultural systems and rural communities; bushfire, coastal and invasive species risk management; and the interactions between environmental change and both human migration and education systems.  Doug's work has been undertaken within different contexts in Australia, Nepal, Thailand, Indonesia, Turkey, Switzerland and the European Union.
