Graeme is a researcher and consultant working on complex disaster and climate risk management challenges using data analysis, systems thinking and stakeholder engagement. Passionate about providing insights and evidence to invest in proactive disaster risk management and climate adaptation.
Advised governments at all levels, along with private companies, on the impacts of disaster and climate risks. This has included developing geo-spatial risk visualisation and analysis tools and engaging with users to integrate them into policy and planning frameworks
Achieves results by drawing on a range of techniques to engage broadly, develop consensus and catalyse action. Skilled in facilitation of workshops and training sessions, developing knowledge products, and disseminating leading research to a range of audiences.
Experienced in managing challenging projects with various stakeholders and conflicting objectives. Highly skilled in written and verbal communication to a range of audiences.
