Roger Jones

Professor Roger Jones is a Professorial Research Fellow at the Centre for Strategic Economic Studies (CSES) at Victoria University. Prof Roger Jones joined VU in early 2009 and is trained as a physical scientist. He now applies an interdisciplinary focus to understanding climate change risk, bridging science, economics and policy. 

Over the past decade, Prof Roger Jones has been the driving force in the application of risk methods to climate change impact and adaptation assessment, and he continues to lead that area. 

More recently, Prof Roger Jones has contributed his scientific and economic understanding to an excellent piece of work alongside Celeste Young and John Symons called the Economic Framework for Green Infrastructure. This is a practical framework that helps to value green infrastructure and integrate it into day-to-day operational decision-making, as well as provide practical economic methods and approaches to assist practitioners to value and evaluate green infrastructure.
