A Critical Approach to Climate Change Adaptation : Discourses, Policies and Practices Hardback
Edited by Silja Klepp, Libertad Chavez-Rodriguez
Part of the Routledge Advances in Climate Change Research series
This edited volume brings together critical research on climate change adaptation discourses, policies, and practices from a multi-disciplinary perspective.
Drawing on examples from countries including Colombia, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Russia, Tanzania, Indonesia, and the Pacific Islands, the chapters describe how adaptation measures are interpreted, transformed, and implemented at grassroots level and how these measures are changing or interfering with power relations, legal pluralismm and local (ecological) knowledge.
As a whole, the book challenges established perspectives of climate change adaptation by taking into account issues of cultural diversity, environmental justicem and human rights, as well as feminist or intersectional approaches.
