As Policy Fellow with the ESRC-funded Place-based Climate Action Network (PCAN), Amanda plays a key role in the design and implementation of place-based climate action in Belfast. She works closely with Prof. John Barry (QUB, PCAN Co-Investigator), partners from across the public, private and third sectors in Belfast, and PCAN colleagues in Leeds, London and Edinburgh to formulate and accomplish PCAN objectives. PCAN is about translating climate policy into action ‘on the ground’ in communities in order to operationalise the Paris Agreement, UK targets and individual city plans to deliver place-based impact as part of a transition to healthier, more prosperous and resilient cities with reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Mirroring activities undertaken by PCAN partners in other cities, the work of PCAN Belfast includes establishment of Belfast Climate Commission and two thematic platforms (business, finance) to aid a just transition within the city; these innovative platforms bring together researchers and stakeholders from across the public, private and third sectors.
