Living with climate change: are there limits to adaptation?

The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and the University of Oslo, with the support of the Global Environmental Change and Human Security (GECHS) project, announce a two day international conference to be held on 7 and 8 of February 2008 at the Royal Geographical Society in London. The title of the conference is “Living with climate change: are there limits to adaptation?” The overall objective of this conference is to consider strategies for adapting to climate change, in particular to explore the potential barriers to adaptation that may limit the ability of societies to adapt to climate change and to identify opportunities for overcoming these barriers. The conference is aimed at researchers and practitioners with an interest in understanding how societies adapt to climate change.

Keynote speakers include: Garry Peterson, McGill University; Benjamin Orlove, University of California; Susanne Moser, National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) See:
