Mission

The overall task of the RMIT Global Cities Research Institute is to research the processes of global change in the urban context, both positive and problematic, with the view to planning and projecting sustainable ways of living. This involves understanding the complexity of globalizing urban settings from provincial centres to mega-cities.

As one of five research programs with the Global Cities Research Institute, the Climate Change Adaptation Program (CCAP) research approach is based on the integration of quantitative, qualitative, and participatory methodologies. CCAP’s activity is deliberately multi-disciplinary, working closely with different academic schools and disciplines; as well as
being shaped by new forms of engagement between scientific, policy, and practitionercommunities. This integrative approach to research is essential if we are to effectively address the complexity of global environmental
change and the ‘real world’ issues associated with a changing climate.
