Varieties of Climate Vulnerability: Assessing Socio-Economic and Political Risks in the Anthropocene


Climate change is exposing new forms of socioeconomic vulnerability with related political consequences. People suffering from economic and social discrimination are especially threatened by the costs of climate change mitigation and adaptation. 

For society to be fair and sustainable, climate policy needs to take into account the needs of these people. However, we have little understanding of the ways citizens, national governments and the international community envision solutions to climate vulnerability that encompass social and economic justice. 

The aim of this project is to generate new knowledge around climate-related vulnerability and the implications of intersectional risks for society. It will involve archival and field work in industrialised and developing countries.
