Achieving Fair and Collective Adaptation to Sea-Level Rise

Back to search results

Sea-level rise, coastal migration and more intense extreme weather events will render 350 million people vulnerable to coastal flooding by 2050. It is in the interests of coastal communities to adapt to such environmental change, yet little is known about how collective adaptation is achieved and whether local initiatives are socially just. This project will advance our understanding about collective action and climate justice through three international sea-level rise case studies. The ultimate aim is to ensure that future coastal adaptation is fair and collaborative to sustain coastal communities through climate change.
