James was a lead author on UNEPs 2017 Adaptation Gap Report, and led an assessment of climate change programming by the International Atomic Energy Agency. In 2019, James authored an internal report for the IWGIA/UNFAO on Food Security and Indigenous Peoples in the Arctic, which was later presented at the Expert Seminar on Traditional Knowledge and Indigenous Peoples’ Fisheries in the Arctic Region




James was a lead author on two chapters of the Arctic Council’s Adaptation Actions for a Changing Arctic Assessment (Baffin Bay/Davis Strait Region), and contributing author on two other chapters.



James was lead author for the northern chapter of Natural Resource Canada’s
national assessment of climate change and the coasts, and is currently a lead author on Health Canada’s national climate change and health assessment. He was also a lead author on two chapters of ArcticNet’s Integrated Regional Impact Studies, focused on Nunavut.
