Research workshop on barriers to adaptation to climate change

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Chameleon Research Group

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 18 - 21 Sep 2012 Location: Germany (Berlin) Venue: Evangelische Bildungsstätte auf Schwanenwerder

Barriers, limits and constraints to adaptation are increasingly discussed within the scientific community on adaptation to climate change. Empirical and theoretical research is currently being undertaken in multiple studies and disciplines. Current research focuses on regions, sectors or organizations in both developing and developed countries. Since institutional, political and economic settings are diverse, the problems encountered in adaptation to climate change also differ greatly. The aim of the workshop is to enhance conceptual and empirical insights into barriers to adaptation by synthesizing current knowledge from diverse disciplinary research streams. Key similarities and differences between barriers are to be identified. A fruitful exchange and synthesis of perspectives helps to generate practical knowledge, interdisciplinary as well as disciplinary sharpness, and to promote the research agenda both on an individual and a broader scale.

The workshop aims at adding to the understanding of barriers to adaptation by especially addressing the following questions:

• How can barriers to adaptation be conceptualized and analyzed?
• How do barriers differ between different actors (political, economic, and societal) and scales?
• What political, institutional and organizational strategies are suitable for overcoming these barriers
