Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Psychology
  • Sustainability
  • Global warming

Her primary areas of study are Environmental resource management, Environmental planning, Environmental protection, Livelihood and Natural resource economics. Her research on Environmental resource management frequently links to adjacent areas such as Positive economics. Her Environmental planning study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Heat wave and Effects of global warming.

Her research links Adaptation strategies with Environmental protection. Gina Ziervogel interconnects Agricultural productivity, Climate forecast and Adaptive capacity in the investigation of issues within Livelihood. Her Adaptive capacity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Developing country and Public economics.

Her most cited work include:

  • Resilience and vulnerability: Complementary or conflicting concepts? (584 citations)
  • Resilience and vulnerability: Complementary or conflicting concepts? (584 citations)
  • Adapting to climate variability: Pumpkins, people and policy (165 citations)

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

Gina Ziervogel spends much of her time researching Environmental resource management, Environmental planning, Context, Livelihood and Adaptive capacity. As part of the same scientific family, Gina Ziervogel usually focuses on Environmental resource management, concentrating on Political economy of climate change and intersecting with Climate model. Her studies deal with areas such as Climate change adaptation, Vulnerability assessment and Environmental protection as well as Environmental planning.

Her Context studies intersect with other disciplines such as Resource, Sustainable development, Water resources, Conversation and Water supply. As a member of one scientific family, she mostly works in the field of Livelihood, focusing on Food security and, on occasion, Natural resource economics and Poverty. Her research combines Water scarcity and Adaptive capacity.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental resource management (41.59%)
  • Environmental planning (30.97%)
  • Context (11.50%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Environmental planning (30.97%)
  • Cape (7.96%)
  • Context (11.50%)

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

Gina Ziervogel mainly focuses on Environmental planning, Cape, Context, Economic Justice and Transformative learning. Her research investigates the connection with Environmental planning and areas like Vulnerability assessment which intersect with concerns in Technocracy. Context is connected with Resource, Conversation, Sustainable development, Adaptive capacity and Settlement in her study.

Her Water resources study deals with Climate risk intersecting with Private sector. Her studies in Water industry integrate themes in fields like Economic growth and Informal settlements. Her study on Government is intertwined with other disciplines of science such as Environmental resource management and Livelihood.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Mapping narratives of urban resilience in the global south (42 citations)
  • Water governance and justice in Cape Town: An overview (29 citations)
  • Building transformative capacity for adaptation planning and implementation that works for the urban poor: Insights from South Africa (22 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Psychology
  • Sustainability
  • Global warming

Her primary scientific interests are in Cape, Environmental planning, Urban resilience, Science policy and Intermediary. Throughout her Cape studies, she incorporates elements of other sciences such as Socioeconomics, Water use, Economic Justice, Water demand management and Public administration. Her Environmental planning research integrates issues from Vulnerability assessment and Technocracy.

Her Intermediary research spans across into areas like Decentralization, Development economics, Government and Natural resource. Her work often combines Narrative and Context studies. Her multidisciplinary approach integrates Local government and Adaptive capacity in her work.
