Climate change presents many risks to small-scale fish and shrimp farmers in Indonesia because their ponds are located close to sea level and they are also impacted by catchment processes. I am conducting Honours-level research on how fish and shrimp farmers in Indonesia perceive and intend to respond to risks associated with climate change. I am also interested in how environmental managers perceive and respond to risk. My research is intended to understand how perception affects risk response and to provide recommendations on how risk perception can be improved, and risk to coastal aquaculture can be best managed. I commenced my study in July 2012.

Thesis title: Perception of Climate Change Risks in an Indonesian Aquaculture Community.
