adaptation to climate change (Vulnerability to heatwaves and drought)


This research aimed to improve understanding of how adaptation to climate change relates to vulnerability, what this means in practice, and how social vulnerability to climate change is currently understood. It explored two case studies of climate change adaptation in the south-west of England, focusing on affordable water efficiency and heatwave planning. Its objective is to begin to explore how climate change adaptation can contribute to social justice and sustainable development.
