David Fawcett
MA Student
University of Guelph - Department of Geography

(Biography) David Fawcett is a M.A. student in the Geography Department at the University of Guelph. Through collaboration with the community of Ulukhaktok, NWT, his research will involve carrying out a climate change vulnerability assessment using the ?vulnerability approach? and a congruent methodology to that used by Dr. Pearce in 2005 (Pearce et al., 2010). This project will be part of creating a longitudinal study of climate change vulnerability and adaptation in Ulukhaktok, providing data and observations on how human-environment relations continue to change over time, and how those changes interact with economic, social, political, and cultural dynamics. From this, a better understanding of the individual- and community-level processes of decision-making and adaptation related to climate change can be developed, ultimately feeding into positive adaptation and policy in the face of a dynamic environment. David completed his B.A. in Geography with a triple concentration (Environmental, Urban, and International studies) at the University of the Fraser Valley.
