Welcome to CarbonBrake

CarbonBrake is the blog for the international development advisor and author, Dr Richard Pagett.

In it I comment on matters of international, national and local interest concerning the critical issues facing the planet and society. Drawing on my unique hands-on experience from more than 140 countries and, locally, within my parish, I discuss and provoke on the critical issues of water, food, energy, shelter and trade security within the context of resilience, sustainability and climate change.
