Professor Claudia Baldwin (BA, MA (UW, Canada), PhD (UQ)) teaches Urban Design and Town Planning at University of the Sunshine Coast. Her research interests focus around engaging communities for change.  She specialises in using participatory and visual methods to research institutional and social-environmental change and consensus-building on topics as diverse as water allocation, coastal planning, rural and regional land use, and climate change adaptation as well as affordable housing and ability and age-friendly communities.  She has worked for the National Water Commission in evaluating progress towards water reforms in Australia.  Her book, Integrated Water Planning: Achieving Sustainable Outcomes (2014, translated into Chinese) is based around the need for appropriate evidenced-based water planning in developed and developing countries. A more recent edited book, Natural Hazards and Disaster Justice: Challenges for Australia and its Neighbours (2020) captures risk, resilience, participation, and justice related to disasters.
