About Me

Lyudmila (Lucy) Rodina is a PhD student, working with Leila Harris, at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability (IRES) and a Liu Scholar at the Liu Institute for Global Issues. In her research, Lucy explores the intersection of water governance and climate change in urban contexts using a social-ecological systems approach. More topically, she examines the nascent challenges to the governance of urban water under changing precipitation patterns,extreme flow events, droughts and freshwater quality concerns. She seeks a deeper understanding of the ways in which climate change affects both water resources and existing governance frameworks. What is at stake? How well suited are urban water governance frameworks to dealing with these challenges? Lucy is also interested in systematically investigating recent critical approaches resilience, and to evaluate the ways in which resilience thinking can be successfully applied to urban water governance under climate change. This will help to envision what a water resilient city would look like – a topic that remains relatively unexplored. More info
