Local climate praxis: bridging the gap between theory and practice on local

Wednesday 30 September 2020

Online

Clear policy signals by international organisations and national governments remain essential, however, important decisions are increasingly being made beyond this, fostering opportunities for climate action within localities: decisions about low–carbon business opportunities, renewable energy investment, urban transport, energy management, buildings efficiency and the management of climate risks.

It is increasingly recognised that the delivery of climate policy ultimately happens through place–based initiatives at the local level (Galarraga et al 2011, 2017), and it has been widely argued that effective delivery of actions to promote low–carbon and climate–resilient development will require experiments with new governance arrangements (Bulkeley et al. 2019; Castan Broto 2020; Jordan et al. 2018; Kivimaa et al, 2017). In particular, processes that engage and harness the combined energies of public, private and third sectors (Gouldson et al, 2016) are required.

PCAN and the RGS Climate Change Research Group are hosting this half day virtual mini conference to bring together international scholars working on a range of topics relating to local climate praxis and to discuss the challenges bridging climate theory and practice within place–based climate action.
