Blane Harvey is a Research Fellow in the Institute of Development Studies' Climate Change Team. Prior to joining IDS he completed a PhD in Education and International Development at McGill University and was a member of the Climate Change Programme at the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).
Blane's recent work has focused on a critical exploration of knowledge production, validation and dissemination processes within climate change, and the use of culturally-appropriate strategies and technologies for learning and knowledge sharing in the global South with a focus on North-South partnerships and inter-institutional cooperation. He is currently conducting research on the convergence of meaning-making across development, ICTs and the sciences in participatory North-South climate change initiatives; and on the potential of African community media to engage in action research and policy influence for climate change adaptation.
Blane has published extensively in the areas of learning, capacity, and knowledge production and has presented papers in these areas at academic and policy-oriented conferences worldwide. He has also been an active contributor to the UN climate change negotiations process since 2003 with a focus on strengthening action to support developing countries adapt to climate change.
