Community responses to climate change

This special series focuses on responses to climate change taking place in, and / or led by, non-traditional ‘research’ communities. It will provide a platform to record and disseminate the insights from many community-level and community-led research projects that are currently poorly visible (or completely invisible) to many researchers and practitioners.
