Welcome to the microsite for the Fifteenth International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts and Responses.
Founded in 2009, The Climate Change: Impacts & Responses Research Network is brought together by a common concern for the science of, and social responses to, climate change. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network, we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.
The Fifteenth International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts & Responses calls for research addressing the following annual themes and special focus:
2023 Special Focus—Responding to the Climate Emergency: Scalable Solutions for the Climate-Nature Intersect
- Theme 1: The Nature of Evidence
Theme 2: Assessing Impacts in Diverse Ecosystems Themes
Theme 3: Human Impacts and Responsibility Theme
Theme 4: Technical, Political, and Social Responses
We are interested in the following lines of investigation:
Why the persistent challenge of universalizing evidence-based approaches?
What are the impacts of climate change on natural environments in particular and universal views?
How have we been agents of climate change, what does a politics of responsibility reveal?
How do scientists, technologies, policymakers, and community members respond to climate change?
Climate Change: Impacts & Responses Research Network also supports a book imprint and a collection of journals.
