Lund University for Sustainability Studies, Lund, Sweden
While the proliferation of new papers and initiatives relating to L&D is promising, many challenges remain for the scientific and policy communities. These include how L&D from climate change should be conceptualised, how to measure and quantify existing L&D and predict future L&D, and what governance arrangements are most appropriate for different contexts. For example, which approaches to L&D from climate-related events can best account for both economic as well as non-economic impacts, where increasing evidence suggest the latter can be just as significant to individuals and communities ? How can climate science, ecological science and sustainability science perspectives be combined to advance L&D theory and practice? And how can L&D from climate events be meaningfully situated within the broader sustainable development agenda, including the SDGs, as highlighted in Article 8 of the Paris Agreement? Is there need for new research to support L&D policy, as new questions emerge that require attention?
The conference will explore L&D through five analytical lenses:
Call for Papers
The conference is hosted by Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies in partnership with the Centre for Environmental and Climate Research (CEC) Lund University, Oxford University, Met Office UK, International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD), Munich Re Foundation and IIASA.
The conference will feature invited speakers, alongside presentations selected from abstract submission, with ample time for discussion. The organizers encourage presentations of new papers to be submitted to a special issue. They will select abstracts to be written into working papers, published in a conference book, and then developed for a special issue.
