Community engagement in adaptation to climate change in Australia

Martin Mulligan and Lesley Duxbury came together to work on an unsuccessful ARC Discovery Grant application in 2011 on the topic Cultural Adaptation to Climate Change in Australia and they have continued to work together on the topic in 2012 and Lesley Duxbury contributed a paper to a special edition of RMIT’s Local-Global edited by Martin Mulligan and Andy Scerri.

The ongoing project has a particular interest in affective relationships between people, climates and places in the world and Mulligan has a particular interest in the extent to which a focus on affect might engage local communities more effectively in thinking about adaptation to climate change.
