About the Author

Troy Sternberg's research examines how climate hazards interact with societies and the environment in Asian drylands. He focuses on hazard identification, social exposure and evolving climate and hazard impact on human systems. Work with pastoralists in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia and China stresses the impact of drought and extreme weather on rural communities and landscapes. Troy is a researcher at the School of Geography, Oxford University. Dawn Chatty is Professor of Anthropology and Forced Migration at the University of Oxford. She is also Director of the Refugee Studies Centre, Oxford Department of International Development at the University. Her ethnographic interests lie in the Middle East, particularly with nomadic pastoral tribes and refugee young people. Her research interests include a number of forced migration and development issues such as conservation-induced displacement, tribal resettlement, modern technology and social change, gender and development and the impact of prolonged conflict on refugee young people.
