Royal Society journal publishes themed issue on risk assessment and climate change adaptation policy

Philosophical Transactions of The Royal Society A has published a themed issue on ‘Advances in risk assessment for climate change adaptation policy’. This was compiled and edited by W Neil Adger, Iain Brown and Swenja Surminski. The themed issue investigates the current practice and frontiers of climate change risk assessment, with specific emphasis on the development of adaptation policy that aims to manage those risks.

The themed issue is available online here.
