Research:

My research is focused on water sensitive cities of the Global South, whilst it specifically studies the role of one particular stakeholder of the city water governance – the tourism industry. The focus is on the industry's role, responsibilities and contribution towards cities´ water resilience, and its sphere of control and the sphere of influence (specific climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies). Part of the research is also the position of the tourism industry in the general water planning schemes of the city and collaboration with other governmental bodies and stakeholders. In addition to the general urban water planning, the research of adaptation and mitigation strategies includes two bigger areas: the direct and indirect water use and change in water consumption behaviour.
