RISC-KIT in the French Media

RISC-KIT partner, Emmanuel Garnier featured on radio “France Culture”, 17 September 2015.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As part of a special series of broadcasts ahead of the COP21 meeting in Paris, RISC-KIT’s Emmanuel Garnier took part in a radio show entitled, “Man and climate: an adaptation on the way”. 

 

Dr. Garnier*, Director of Research CNRS laboratory LIENSs-University of La Rochelle, historian and climate risks, came together with Amy Dahan, historian and sociologist of Sciences, Director of Research Emeritus at the CNRS (Centre Alexandre Koyré) and author Stefan Aykut, author of, “Gouverner le climat : 20 ans de négociations internationals” (Presses de Science Po, 2015), to discuss the historical context of climate change. 

 

The awareness of climate change already dates back more than a century, to the late Nineteenth Century. During the interview, the guests spoke about whom were the drivers of that awareness, the solutions to climate change that mankind has developed over the decades as well as what’s in store for the future of climate change and adaptation.

 

You can hear the show again (in French) here.

 

Dr. Garnier is a historian of the environment specialized in the history of climate and risks. He contributes to RISC-KIT through WP1 (i) study archives and bibliography to estimate the frequency and the severity of littoral hazards; (ii) study the impacts (economy, health and demography) of these disasters and the strategies of resilience elaborated by societies in the history, more particularly in the memory of the risk and in its preservation until today.

 

*Dr. Garnier participates in the RISC-KIT project as a representative from UniCaen - Université de Caen, Basse-Normandie.
