Daniel Morchain is Global Adviser in Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience with Oxfam. With experience in over a dozen countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America, he has worked in designing and implementing adaptation and development strategies that aim to support the poorest and most marginalised, while recognising the importance of constructively engaging stakeholders from local to national levels. Daniel led the development of the Vulnerability & Risk Assessment (VRA) approach, which facilitates the development of a landscape-wide and cross-scalar understanding of vulnerability and the design of development pathways. As co-Principal Investigator in the "Adaptation at Scale in Semi Arid Regions" (ASSAR) project, he led the Research-into-Use work stream, which aims to make research more participatory and recognise impact as its key objective. His focus areas in the context of climate change adaptation and development are vulnerability analysis, gender, cross-scalar participatory processes, and transformation.
