Advancing climate change adaptation and climate risk understanding through intervention research: case studies from Brazil and Australia
MetadataShow full item record
This chapter provides a reflection on the role of intervention research in aiding climate change adaptation by improving both adaptive capacity and the understanding of climate risks. The reflection is based on two separately conducted intervention research projects that focused on the factors that can influence climate change response. The first was a sub‐project of a 4‐year study of the social and ecological dimensions of climate change on the north coast of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and the second was a collaborative planning process involving the Cardwell community in the North Queensland coast of Australia. The chapter presents a conceptual model that illustrates how intervention research can aid climate change adaptation based on a literature review. It then applies this conceptual model to explore how the knowledge generation process enabled through the two interventions contributed to improving climate risk understanding and facilitated change.
