Science Policy Forum

In the previous post, Melissa Leach elaborated the need to understand adaptiveness, as a capacity to deal with multiple stresses at the local level. But what about adaptiveness to multiple stresses and shocks at the global scale? Listen to an exclusive video-interview for this blog, with Brian Walker (CSIRO Australia), lead author of Friday’s Policy Forum article in Science “Looming Global-Scale Failures and Missing Institutions”. What sort of novel challenges to adaptiveness are posed by interacting global crises? And what is the difference between “adaptation” and “transformation” really?

Interview with Brian Walker by Sturle Hauge Simonsen [9 minutes].

And yes, you can still comment on the previous post!
