Climate Change poses new challenges for societies. Besides measures of mitigation, adaptation strategies are needed that take the different sectors of societies into account. The development and implementation of these strategies need to be developed collaboratively by different stakeholders and disciplines as well as in international cooperation in order to meet various competing claims in a region or between regions.
COAST works on these topics in trans- and interdisciplinary contexts and in close cooperation with universities and partners in the global South, especially in Africa.
