Sections on climate and water governance at ECPR general conference

The general conference of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR), which will be organized in Bordeaux, 4-7 September 2013, has a promising program for those interested in climate and water governance. Katrien Termeer (Wageningen University, the Netherlands) and Joerg Knieling (HafenCity Universität Hamburg, Germany) will organize a Section on climate change governance (Section nr 07).They aim to bring together a series of panels focusing on governance issues relating to three key challenges of climate change: (1) limiting the magnitude of climate change, through for example reducing greenhouse gas emissions, transforming energy production or reforestation; (2) developing and implementing adjustments to adapt to the effects of climate change, through for example dykes or changing spatial planning, and (3) increasing the adaptive capacity of society to deal with (unexpected) future changes through broader processes of societal change .
