First Symposium on the Cultures of Coastal Adaptation

The Adaptation and Social Learning group organized the first (virtual) Symposium on the Cultures of Coastal Adaptation that was held on the 22nd and 23rd September. The symposium made a first step towards developing a novel, interdisciplinary, empirical social science perspective on the various cultures of coastal adaptation that is currently missing in discussions of the climate change adaptation community.
The symposium brought together leading adaptation scholars from multiple social science disciplines and regions. The symposium featured case studies from Comoros, Indonesia, Germany, UK, Netherlands, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, USA, Brazil, Vietnam and the Maldives.
