Dr. Aditya Bahadur FRGS is a Senior Research Officer in the Adaptation and Resilience team of ODI’s Climate and Environment Programme. He has over 8 years of experience in research, evaluation and practice of DRR, climate change and development. As his CV will demonstrate, he has published widely on these issues including in highly regarded academic journals. His work has been cited by the IPCC; it has informed DfID’s approach to disaster resilience; and it has also influenced BOND’s (the nodal network of UK INGOs) concept of resilience.

In the past, Dr. Bahadur has worked on projects for AusAID, DfID, IFAD, the Hewlett Foundation, the Shell Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, ActionAid and the Institute of Development Studies. Notably, Dr. Bahadur has substantial experience of examing development problems in urban areas- not only was his PhD research located in the urban context, he has undertaken research on climate and disaster impacts in urban areas for the Rockefeller Foundation and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network.

He completed his undergraduate studies at St. Stephen’s College, Delhi University and has an MA and a PhD in Development Studies (focus on climate change resilience) from the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex, UK. His PhD entailed intensive, ethnographic field work in North and Central India. Aditya has also undertaken periods of study in Hungary, Denmark and Thailand.

Aditya presents his research regularly in high-level intergovernmental forums on climate change and disasters and was granted a Fellowship of the Royal Geographical Society (FRGS) in June 2014.
