From July 2007 Jamie has been a WWF Research Associate at The Australian National University researching the conflicts and synergies between water and climate change policies. Part of this research is looking at lessons from auto-adaptation in six rivers in developing countries. Other elements involve: assessment climate change response measures and options for Australia's Murray-Darling Basin; comparative analysis of integration between national environmental, water and climate policies of nine nations; and research on the effectiveness of international agreements for integrated management of freshwater ecosystems and climate change.
