Diaz, H. and D. A. Gauthier
This article focuses on the role of public institutions as a component of the adaptive capacity of rural communities and rural households for dealing with risks from changing climate conditions and resource scarcities. The discussion is intended to contribute to the understanding of the term ?adaptive capacity? by discussing conceptual and methodological issues related to institutional adaptation to climate change. Research underway in the SSRB is used for illustrative purposes.
