Research Positions in the Field of Climate Adaptation Governance

Multiple attractive new research positions in the field of climate adaptation governance

Adapting to worsening impacts of climate change is one of the greatest modern challenges. Yet, limited action on the part of public authorities still prevails. Why is this so? What causes lock-ins in climate adaptation policies? How do they arise, manifest themselves and why do they persist?
