Institutional Networks and Self Organised Adaptation: Tracing the Democratic Architectures of Climate Response

This project has been awarded by Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and looks at the role of public support systems in helping vulnerable rural populations confront the challenges of climate change.

The project was launched on June 1, 2019.
The project aims to answer the below mentioned questions:

  • How do different livelihood portfolios shape exposure to climate risk - and what are the multiple threats that different households face?
  • How do citizen and citizen groups engage with state institutions to address climate threats?
  • How do different ‘institutional networks’ unfold, and how do different networks, in turn, influence responses to climate risk?
  • How do state responses influence livelihood systems and exposure to climate risk over time?
