Abigail Sullivan

For example, one of Sullivan's recent projects analyzed an ongoing drought policy planning process to understand barriers and facilitators to governance across multiple scales – between federal, state and local decision makers – in the lower Colorado River basin. In another project, Sullivan surveyed public perceptions of climate change and support for water governance transitions in Denver, Las Vegas and Phoenix to inform local decision makers. Sullivan’s research team is particularly interested in studying the nexus between freshwater and forest governance in Indiana communities in the face of environmental change.
