Joint PhD Seminars on Environmental Challenges
Bringing stakeholders in: supporting society in climate adaptation strategies as part of the PhD project
Climate change has and will continue to affect all sectors of society. This in turn necessarily influences the management and adaptation strategies that people in society use to meet their climate-related challenges. For example, What agency do I have to actually make an impact on the climate? What timescale do I need to consider for my adaptation strategy? Who should be included in decision-making and who is left out?
While the presenters of this seminar each explore different sectors of society, what they have in common is the explicit inclusion of community members and stakeholders in their PhD research projects. From marine coastal areas to forest landscapes and climate adaptation processes in local communities, decision-makers need to balance different values and scales, and make decisions with various levels of autonomy. In what ways are these early career scientists participating in and learning about stakeholders’ adaptation strategies, while also staying within the confines of what it means to conduct PhD research?
