Project description:
This project answers key questions about how different actors contribute to or impede climate governance (from long-term challenges to crisis response), how these actors compete or cooperate as governors, how these connections impact actors’ legitimacy and authority, and how civilians interact with them and attribute responsibility (negatively or positively) for climate hazard management.
