Adaptation to Climate Change Jola and DamiJeanne Sauvé Fellows Idowu Ajibade (2008-09) and Damilola Olawuyi (2010-11),  have contributed to the just-published Adaptation to Climate Change through Water Resources Management — Capacity, Equity and Sustainability (2014).
Jola and Dami are the authors of Chapter 13 “Climate Change Impacts on Housing and Property Rights in Nigeria and Panama: Toward a Rights-based Approach to Adaptation and Mitigation”

Among the book’s excellent reviews:
“This book is not only intended for academics but also for policy makers and practitioners at large, written in an easy language. It is a nice effort because it gives voice to young academics all over the world and how they see adaptation from the perspective of their own country and expertise. The issues addressed are pertinent for ensuring implementation of adaptation to climate change which is a weakness in many countries. I am sure the case studies provide necessary bench marks for many efforts of implementation.” – Eiman Karar, Executive Director, Water Resources Management, Water Research Commission, South Africa.

In June, it was  Manish Thapa’s book on India and now Jola and Dami. There will surely be more JS Fellows tapped for their knowledge and pretty soon, Routledge will have to start crediting the Jeanne Sauvé Foundation for producing so many outstanding young thinkers and contributing authors!
