The Paris Agreement on climate change defines adaptation as a global challenge, with a global goal, requiring global governance arrangements. Transnational climate impacts, cascading across borders and along global supply chains, also show that a local emphasis on adaptation is no longer sufficient. Academic and policy debates on the complexity and scale of climate adaptation coincide with the emergence of global, regional and transnational initiatives for governing, planning and implementing adaptation action.

The workshop is funded by two research grants from the Swedish Research Council Formas: ‘Governance of climate adaptation in a globalised world’ (principal investigator: Åsa Persson) and ‘Transnational adaptation governance: Explaining and exploring the role of new actors in enhancing the success of adaptation’ (principal investigator: Richard  Klein).
