Farhana Sultana

Farhana Sultana, professor of geography and the environment, is one of 15 geographers from 11 states and the West Indies named as the American Association of Geographer’s first-ever cohort in the Elevate the Discipline program, which will train and showcase geographers in action—in the media, as voices for public policies, and in advocating for change—on this year’s theme of climate and society.

The 15 geographers were selected through a competitive process. The program will train them over the next several months in leadership, media skills, and policy strategies, and thereafter will connect and elevate their work in public discourse.

Sultana is a geographer with a strong background in human geography and environmental geography. Her interdisciplinary research spans political ecology, climate justice and water governance. She is known for her cutting-edge work on the multifaceted impacts of climate change, water scarcity and environmental injustices on marginalized communities.
