Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Climate change
  • Sustainability

His main research concerns Environmental resource management, Climate change, Adaptive capacity, Environmental planning and Impact assessment. He combines subjects such as Vulnerability assessment, Risk management and Scholarship with his study of Environmental resource management. His Vulnerability assessment study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sustainable development and Climate change vulnerability.

His research ties Agriculture and Climate change together. His research in Adaptive capacity intersects with topics in Resource management and Arctic. His research integrates issues of Sustainability and Sustainable Agriculture Innovation Network in his study of Political economy of climate change.

His most cited work include:

  • Adaptation, adaptive capacity and vulnerability (3181 citations)
  • Climate change 2007 : impacts, adaptation and vulnerability : Working Group II contribution to the Fourth Assessment Report of the IPCC Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2621 citations)
  • An Anatomy of Adaptation to Climate Change and Variability (1079 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Barry Smit spends much of his time researching Climate change, Environmental resource management, Agriculture, Adaptive capacity and Environmental planning. His work on Political economy of climate change as part of general Climate change research is often related to Context, thus linking different fields of science. His Environmental resource management research integrates issues from Vulnerability assessment, Natural resource economics, Environmental change and Livelihood.

In his work, Agricultural land is strongly intertwined with Agricultural economics, which is a subfield of Agriculture. The Adaptive capacity study combines topics in areas such as Traditional knowledge, Emergency management, Arctic and Adaptability. He studied Environmental planning and Sustainability that intersect with Sustainable development.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climate change (51.24%)
  • Environmental resource management (42.98%)
  • Agriculture (29.75%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2019)?

  • Climate change (51.24%)
  • Environmental resource management (42.98%)
  • Adaptive capacity (21.49%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Barry Smit focuses on Climate change, Environmental resource management, Adaptive capacity, Arctic and Environmental planning. Climate change and Context are two areas of study in which he engages in interdisciplinary research. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Political economy of climate change, Livelihood, Adaptive strategies, Environmental change and Vulnerability assessment.

His Vulnerability assessment research includes themes of Extreme weather and Climate change vulnerability. His Adaptive capacity research also works with subjects such as

  • Environmental impact assessment, Focus group and Resource management most often made with reference to Emergency management,
  • Ecosystem which is related to area like Private sector and Indigenous. His work deals with themes such as Global warming and Wildlife, which intersect with Arctic.

Between 2008 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Climate change 2007 : impacts, adaptation and vulnerability : Working Group II contribution to the Fourth Assessment Report of the IPCC Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2621 citations)
  • Case study and analogue methodologies in climate change vulnerability research. (223 citations)
  • Climate change policy responses for Canada's Inuit population: The importance of and opportunities for adaptation (168 citations)
