Ms Tracy-Ann Hyman (PhD candidate, ISD, Mona) an Ms Marium Alleyne (PhD candidate, Cave Hill) have been named among the Commonwealth Futures Climate Research Cohort of 26 global rising-star researchers for 2021. The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) and the British Council have partnered to establish the Commonwealth Futures Climate Research Cohort, supporting the researchers to bring local knowledge to a global stage in the lead-up to the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26). Members of cohort are based at 25 ACU member universities from 16 countries. Throughout 2021, they will attend a series of expert-led workshops and design and deliver peer-led research-to-action projects. They will also be travelling to Glasgow in November to attend the landmark COP26 conference.  The researchers will be mentored by senior academics and experts including Mr. Jeremy Collymore, Honorary Research Fellow, Institute for Sustainable Development (ISD), and Advisor Disaster Resilience, Office of the Vice Chancellor, University of the West Indies (UWI). Congrats Tracy-Ann and Marium.
