‘Local Environment: The International Journal of Justice and Sustainability’, volume 18, issue 6 2013 is edited and features papers by LSE Cities’ researcher Jon Silver in collaboration with Durham University and UN Habitat. The focus of the special issue is on the related issues of vulnerability, adaptation and resilience as they are emerging in the urban arena. While concerns for mitigation have long dominated the urban climate change agenda, the need to adjust to future climatic conditions and to respond to current climate related disasters means that questions of vulnerability, adaptation and resilience are becoming increasingly important. This collection provides rich empirical accounts of how this agenda is being developed in a diverse set of urban contexts in cities in Africa, Asia and Latin America. For more information click here.
