COPE Socials: Maladaptation - When adaptation to climate change goes very wrong
The UNEP Adaptation Gap Report underlines the perceived funding ‘gap’ for adaptation to climate change, echoing many calls for increased funding. But studies are showing that adaptation to climate change very often ends up in maladaptation, where people instead become more vulnerable to climate change as a result of project activities. What is maladaptation, and why aren’t we better at detecting it before it happens? This talk blends the policy context with on-the-ground experiences to try to unpack whether we are at a standstill on understanding maladaptation and how we can address it.
