Rethinking Conventional Wisdom about Adaptation

A new paper published today by myself, Johanna Mustelin, and Megan Maloney urges adaptation researchers and practitioners to think critically about the assumptions or heuristics they use in framing adaptation. Climate Adaptation Heuristics and the Science/Policy Divide defines the concept of an 'adaptation heuristic', presents a critical content analysis of the adaptation literature to identify the use of such heuristics, and comments on their potential implications for adaptation research and practice.
