Roger Jones is a Professorial Research Fellow at the Centre for Strategic Economic Studies (CSES) at Victoria University, joining VU in early 2009. Previously he worked for CSIRO for thirteen years to early 2009. Trained as a physical scientist, he now applies an interdisciplinary focus to understanding climate change risk, bridging science, economics and policy, particularly in developing methodologies for assessing adaptation and mitigation strategies for managing climate change risks. These have been used widely in Australia and internationally, contributing to the Australian Climate Change Adaptation Strategy, the United Nations Development Program Adaptation Policy Frameworks and a range of individual projects. He was a convening Lead Author on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Working Group II Fourth Assessment Report Chapter on New Methods and Characterisations of the Future released in 2007. He is currently working on a range of adaptation projects and developing new methods for assessing mitigation policy with Professor Peter Sheehan of the CSES..
Over the past decade, Prof Roger Jones has been the driving force in the application of risk methods to impact and adaptation assessment and continues to lead that area. He was Principal Research Scientist with CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research. Methods developed by Prof Jones have been used widely in Australia and internationally and have contributed to the Australian Climate Change Adaptation Strategy, the United Nations Development Program Adaptation Policy Frameworks and are being used by researchers in a number of countries. He was a convening Lead Author on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Working Group II Fourth Assessment Report Chapter on New Methods and Characterisation of the Future.
The project has moved its focus from spatial mapping towards insitutional mapping to support strategic decision making surrounding prevention, preparedness, recovery and resilience using a multi-value approach.
