Career Summary

Biography

I started my academic career in Australia in 1995 as a Lecturer in Geography at Central Queensland University. My research focused on development and environment and social sustainability issues in two geographic regions, namely, Australia, Bangladesh and South Southeast Asia. During my term at CQU I received a major ARC infrastructure grant ($100000) with Prof. Geoff Lawrence. During this time I was also involved in two major funded research. The first one was funded by Premier's Department, Queensland Government, to conduct a social impact assessment study of a proposed dam near Gladstone. The other one was funded by a non-governmental organization in Bangladesh to review their program. I published a number of journal articles and two books. I moved to the University of Newcastle in 1999. I continued my research on Bangladesh and also developed new research on issues related to local areas with global significance (community participation; climate change adaptation, EIA and SIA). I have supervised eight research higher degree students from Australia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, The Philippines and Vietnam (AusAid Scholars) to successful completion. Currently, I am supervising six PhD students from Australia, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Antigua & Barbuda. Their research topics are aligned with that of mine and include: Marine Protected Areas and Social Issues in Australia; Climate Change Adaptation in Bangladesh; Women's Adaptation to Climate Change in Developing Countries; Adaptation to Climate Change in Small Island Developing States; and Fisheries Resource Management in Vietnam. I have published four books and many peer reviewed journal articles in the last few years.

Research Expertise
My research focuses on impact of development in developed and developing countries, and development, environment and poverty in developing countries. I have special interests on community participation in environmental decision making and the role of non-governmental organizations in poverty alleviation. My development studies research naturally progressed into climate change adaptation.

Teaching Expertise

In-situ signage is a cost effective environmental education tool used in marine protected area (MPA) management, and the design and location of signage is crucial to attract the attention of targeted audiences. The implementation of multiple-use MPAs increases the challenges of communicating awareness of MPA boundaries and permitted activities. Currently, little is known about how effective signage in multiple-use MPAs is in communicating information to stakeholders that will promote supportive attitudes and behaviours towards MPAs. This study evaluated the usefulness of in-situ signage in an existing multiple-use MPA, to determine if signs pertaining to the MPA captured the attention of recreational users, and provided adequate information. Structured interviews with recreational fishers, divers, and other users, were used to determine users' awareness of being in an MPA, their awareness of management objectives and associated zoning scheme, together with levels of agreement or disagreement on whether or not current in-situ signage adequately communicates information about the MPA. It was evident that the types and accessibility of in-situ signs in the MPA may not be effective at capturing the attention of intended audiences and providing relevant information, with the exception of signs located at the dive site, due to their design, size, and placement. Awareness differed among the three user groups, together with their views on the effectiveness of signage. Many recreational fishers believed existing signage was inadequate and unclear, and expressed frustrations with the complexity of zoning rules and location of their boundaries. Based on this study, recommendations about the presentation, content, and placement of signage relative to access points, and information required by MPA users, is provided.

This paper assesses the overall quality of the EISs of four major sectors and the variation in quality of the EISs among the four sectors in Bangladesh. While there are ample studies on the overall quality of EISs irrespective of sectors, there is a lack of research focus in Bangladesh or elsewhere on how the quality of EISs varies by sectors. This study reviews 40 EISs of four major sectors in Bangladesh by using the Lee-Colley method. The review findings indicate that, in general, the quality of EISs in Bangladesh is satisfactory. However, there is a variation in the quality of EISs by sectors where EISs for two sectors are found to be below the satisfactory level. The reasons behind the variation in the quality of EISs by sector are analysed. Furthermore, this paper analyses the factors influencing the overall quality of EISs in Bangladesh as 35% of EISs are still poorly prepared. The factors responsible for the poor performance of EISs include inadequate study time, the lack of baseline data, weak EIA teams, the lack of EIA experts, inadequate funds and weak Terms of Reference.

The coastal area of Bangladesh has been a focus of climate change and hazard research due to its extreme vulnerability to tropical cyclones, often leading to disaster. While there have been recent studies on the nature of these disasters, people's vulnerability and responses, little is known about how other key stresses, interacting with these extreme weather events, impact natural resources and the flow of ecosystem services that sustain local livelihoods. In this paper, we explore the process by which major stresses and hazards shape the vulnerability of people's livelihoods in dynamic social-ecological environments in the southwest coastal region of Bangladesh. Drawing on qualitative and quantitative data from a case study, we identify the key drivers of change in social-ecological systems and evaluate whether these drivers have affected livelihood outcomes and various components of human wellbeing. This analysis suggests that increasing salinity intrusion, tropical cyclone and land-use change (directly and through changes in ecosystem services) affect the access to livelihood assets at household scale. This undermines social wellbeing by seriously impacting food and water security. Through identification of key stresses and their interactions, and the consequent impacts on ecosystems services and household capitals, the current study proposes a conceptual framework to understand the present day vulnerability to multiple stressors in the context of the coastal region of Bangladesh.

The available evidence suggests that the major rural development programme instituted by the Bangladesh Government in the 1960s has failed to assist the poorer sections of the rural community to any great extent. Although recently redesigned to provide better access to its services for small farmers and the landless, it is argued that the main reason for its continuing failure to meet their needs arises from their variable access to land and other private resources which together limit the advantages to be acquired from the goods and services provided under the IRDP. Understanding the process by which access is differentiated is, therefore, crucial to designing improvements to existing programmes and to developing appropriate institutions for those who lack access. In principle the IRDP can work effectively on behalf of the rural poor but its impact is greatly reduced in practice by a complex and poorly supervised administration at the local level and weak links with potential recipients. The ownership of material assets, especially land, and the individual's position in the local power structure remain the determining factors in the receipt of benefits from the IRDP. -from Author
