Social Transformation through Climate Change Adaptation?

Critical debate and book presentation


During the last decades climate change adaptation has become a growing necessity and a much-debated topic worldwide. Especially in the field of North-South relations and international development adaptation politics and projects are often controversial and challenge the status quo. On the evening of the 1st of November, we will discuss at Hansa48 how far these interventions have a transformative potential or if they are just fortifying the power of elites and deepen inequalities. 

We have invited authors of the book "A Critical Approach to Climate Change Adaptation. Discourses, Policies and Practices" from Mexico, Venezuela and Germany. After a short presentation of the book by Florian Dünckmann (CAU Kiel) we will open the floor for a round table discussion with Libertad Chavez-Rodriguez (CIESAS Mexico), Daniel Morchain (Oxfam UK), Sybille Bauriedl (Uni Flensburg) and Jonas Hein (CAU Kiel).
