Objectives

The general objective of the project is to demonstrate, by publication of practical examples, the role of social analysis in designing effective and equitable responses to climate change in developing countries. The book will be based on recent climate change adaptation research by Nordic researchers and Nordic institutions. The Project has three main components:

1. Mobilization, scoping and peer review. This component will further develop the approach and methodology. This initial step will be followed by a comprehensive author mapping in Nordic institutions with a focus on most recent social science studies of climate change adaptation and an outline of key research themes. A technical workshop will bring together all participating authors and provide the first feedback and preliminary peer review. The outcome of the first component will be a technical report with all the planned articles.

2. Text revision, approval, and policy outreach. The component will develop the final edited document including independent peer review and produce a book manuscript ready for publication. The major findings and recommendations may be presented at a policy level workshop.

3. Publication. The final edited and proofed manuscript will be published as a book by a major academic press. The book will be distributed and used as part of an international event to present new Nordic social research on climate change adaptation in developing countries.

The project will be implemented by Fridtjof Nansen Institute in Norway and have contributions from Nordic researchers and research institutions in the Nordic countries.   

Financing

Total cost of the project will be EUR 200,000 and the implementation period will be 18 months.
