Climate Change and Economic Development in Small Island Developing States

Speaker: Stefano Moncada
Speaker Intro:

Stefano Moncada has been working since November 2008 with the University of Malta, at the Institute for European Studies, where he lectures and conducts research in the areas of development economics, climate change adaptation and health, island studies, and sustainable development. He graduated in Development Economics from the University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’ (First Class) and completed a Master of Arts in European Studies at the University of Malta in 2005. He obtained his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Malta in 2016 focusing on the links between development and climate change adaptation, especially on the impacts of Overseas Development Assistance (ODA) on health and adaptive capacity in Least Developed Countries (LDCs). As part of his research he developed a new impact evaluation assessment that makes use of participatory qualitative research and quantitative (quasi-experimental) techniques. Stefano’s recent research activities include health and economic assessments, in the face of climate change, of urban communities in Africa and in Small Island Developing States (SIDS), with a focus on the Pacific Region.
