Summary
"This book explores the capacity of different stakeholders to work together build urban resilience to climate change through an equity-cantered approach to cross-sectoral collaboration. Urban areas, where the majority of the global population dwells, are particularly vulnerable to a myriad of climate stressors, the effects of which are acutely present in places and to communities that have been largely excluded from decision-making processes. Our need for working and learning together is at a critical threshold, yet at present, the process for and understanding of inter-sectoral collaborations remains a theoretical ideal and fall short of the broad appeal that many have claimed. Collaborating for Climate Equity argues that researcher-practitioner partnerships offer a promising pathway toward ensuring equitable outcomes while building climate resilience. By presenting five case studies from the U.S., Chile and Mexico, each explores the contours of developing robust researcher-practitioner collaborations that endure and span institutional boundaries. The case studies included in the book are augmented by a synthesis that reflects upon the key findings and offers generalizable principles for applying similar approaches to other cities across the globe. This work contributes to a nascent knowledge base on the real-world challenges and opportunities associated with researcher-practitioner partnerships. It provides guidance to academics and practitioners involved in collaborative research, planning, and policymaking"--, Provided by publisher
