Climate Change & Resilience
At LUCSUS, we have a long-standing focus on adressing the societal dimensions of climate change, such as food security, greenhouse gas emission reductions, and transformation of energy and urban and rural land use systems. We adress these dimensions from the perspectives of poverty, inequality, gender, governance, consumption patterns, economy, justice and responsibility.
Through a variety of projects, on both a local and global level, our researchers examine drivers of environmental change. For example, impacts on and engagement by governmental and non-governmental actors, how change is happening: at which scale, who does it affect, and who directs change?
At LUCSUS, we drill into issues of values beliefs and needs that underpins responses to climate change, issues of justice and responsibility, and forms of adaptive and anticipatory governance in decision-making.
