Dr Jeremy Carter - Personal details
Jeremy Carter (BA, Grad CIPD, MA, PhD) is a Research Fellow working within the School of Environment and Development and the Centre for Urban and Regional Ecology at the University of Manchester.
His research focuses on environmental planning and management. Specific interests include climate change adaptation, spatial planning, water resource management (including flood risk management and the Water Framework Directive) and scenario planning. He has led research projects and published peer reviewed academic papers across these fields.
Jeremy is currently working on three projects operating across sub-regional and international scales; EcoCities, Adaptation Strategies for European Cities and Climate Proof Cities. Cross cutting themes linking these projects include climate change adaptation in cities and spatial planning. Each of these projects connects researchers with policy makers and practitioners, providing valuable routes for the development of collaborative outputs that have impact beyond the academic community.
In addition to his research work at the University, Jeremy’s external roles include acting as adaptation theme lead during the development of Greater Manchester’s climate change strategy, representing the University on the Northwest Climate Change Partnership and advising the UK Government’s Adaptation Sub-Committee and the Town and Country Planning Association. He has also been appointed as an international expert to support the Committee of the Regions on their submission to the European Commission on the EU Adaptation Strategy.
