Dealing with change in SIDS: societal action and political reaction in sea level change adaptation in Small Island Developing States

Small Island Development States (SIDS) are particularly threatened by the impacts of climate change and associated triggered coastal processes. The overall objective of the project is to consider the challenges for formal and informal institutions and island societies of dealing with changes due to sea level rise, as well as potentials and pitfalls of adaptive capacities.
