A publication on climate change adaptation and development released

The book is a result of a two-year project to strengthen the social aspects in adaptation research and approaches. The project is led by Fridtjof Nansen Institute in Norway. The editorial team consists of social scientists who worked closely with Nordic researches to develop new research contributions on social aspects of climate change adaptation in developing countries.

The findings and policy recommendations show that since climate change affects lives and livelihoods, infrastructure and institutions, as well as beliefs, cultures and identities, the social dimensions of vulnerability and adaptation will need to move to the forefront of development policies and practices. The publication will be presented later in January at a seminar at Norad in Oslo.
