Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research, CSPR provide research in five areas. Here we present research in the field of Vulnerability, adaptation and change.
Understanding natural and social systems' vulnerability and ability to adapt to climate variability and change is vital. In this research area, we explore how individuals, organisations, communities and ecosystems may seize economic, social and/or ecological opportunities in a changing climate now and in the future. We also analyse the factors that are shaping their vulnerability and robustness. This includes studying how climate risks, aid and finance are framed, assessed, planned and governed.
