Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Social science
  • Management
  • Capitalism

Mark Pelling mainly focuses on Environmental resource management, Vulnerability, Adaptive capacity, Risk management and Social learning. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Economic security, Environmental change, Economic system and Psychological resilience. His Vulnerability research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Economic growth, Development economics and Resilience.

Mark Pelling focuses mostly in the field of Adaptive capacity, narrowing it down to matters related to Social change and, in some cases, Social capital, Social reproduction and Public economics. His Risk management research also works with subjects such as

  • Framing, Conceptual framework and Computer security most often made with reference to Risk analysis,
  • Environmental planning most often made with reference to Vulnerability assessment. His studies deal with areas such as Political economy of climate change and Social engagement as well as Social learning.

His most cited work include:

  • Adaptation to Climate Change: From Resilience to Transformation (761 citations)
  • The Vulnerability of Cities: Natural Disasters and Social Resilience (628 citations)
  • Understanding adaptation: What can social capital offer assessments of adaptive capacity? (588 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental resource management, Environmental planning, Vulnerability, Risk management and Disaster risk reduction. Environmental resource management and Natural hazard are two areas of study in which Mark Pelling engages in interdisciplinary research. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Vulnerability assessment, Megacity and Risk assessment.

His Vulnerability research includes themes of Economic growth and Development economics. Mark Pelling focuses mostly in the field of Risk management, narrowing it down to topics relating to Adaptive capacity and, in certain cases, Social change. His Disaster risk reduction study incorporates themes from Public economics, Public relations and Urban resilience.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental resource management (31.17%)
  • Environmental planning (28.57%)
  • Vulnerability (20.78%)

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

  • Psychological resilience (10.39%)
  • Environmental planning (28.57%)
  • Development economics (9.74%)

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

His main research concerns Psychological resilience, Environmental planning, Development economics, Disaster risk reduction and Urban resilience. Mark Pelling interconnects Vulnerability and Public administration in the investigation of issues within Psychological resilience. His Vulnerability study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Natural resource economics and Injustice.

His work carried out in the field of Environmental planning brings together such families of science as Multidisciplinary approach, Interdependence and Adaptive capacity. His research in Adaptive capacity intersects with topics in Coastal flood, Environmental change and Effects of global warming. His study on Disaster risk reduction also encompasses disciplines like

  • Public relations and related International development and Risk management,
  • Corporate governance that intertwine with fields like Political authorities and Economic growth.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Beyond Technical Fixes: climate solutions and the great derangement (59 citations)
  • Mapping narratives of urban resilience in the global south (42 citations)
  • Put equity first in climate adaptation (25 citations)

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

  • Social science
  • Capitalism
  • Management

Mark Pelling spends much of his time researching Urban resilience, Development economics, Vulnerability, Experiential learning and Science policy. His studies in Urban resilience integrate themes in fields like Corporate governance, Human geography and Public relations. The various areas that Mark Pelling examines in his Corporate governance study include Economic system and Political authorities.

His Development economics research integrates issues from Poverty and Psychological resilience. He studies Adaptive capacity which is a part of Vulnerability. His study in Science policy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Urban planning and Scholarship.
