Better  together?  Reconciling  the  supply of,  and  demand  for,  climate knowledge in adaptation decision making 

Cumberland Lodge, Windsor Park

This international workshop brings together scholars from different disciplines, philosophical traditions, and national contexts, to reflect on the socio-technical and institutional-political considerations affecting the supply of, and demand for, climate knowledge in adaptation decision-making.

Over 48 hours, this residential workshop will allow participants to give talks, share ideas and debate. Workshop papers will be circulated to everyone prior to the workshop but to introduce greater interaction and reflexivity, each paper will be delivered first by a discussant, followed by the author's response, then opened up for general discussion.

By invitation only.
