Moynihan Challenge Conference:
Building Community Capacity to Adapt to Climate Change across Sites, Groups and Scales
Social scientists are paying increased attention to human adaptation to climate change, attempting to understand how, where, and when climate change adaptation is occurring (or not), and the challenges involved. We are bringing together a diverse group of scholars to discuss how different disciplines are approaching and studying climate adaptation. This workshop aims to enhance critical conversationsabout climate change adaptation across academic disciplines, thereby engaging with different perspectives that can foster integrative analyses and further collaborations. We hope to generate actionable research topics for future study and ideas about how social science research can further contribute to practitioners and policy-makers working on climate adaptation projects around the world.
