Climate change is here, so how do we govern adaptation?
More frequent heatwaves and bushfires, more intense storms, sea level rise, and more – we are already feeling the effects of climate change. While we see little action on the mitigation of greenhouse gases in Australia, and the world’s nations struggle to agree to a new framework for limiting climate change, local governments have begun plans to adapt to a changing environment.
This symposium will examine some of the normative frameworks for adaptation policy – justice, resilience, transformation – and explore specific cases and experiences of adaptation planning.
