Abstract

- Understanding the socioeconomic, cultural, historical and political nuances of a place is essential for realising effective local decision-making for climate action.

- People are central to understanding place-based risk and resilience, with consideration of inequality and vulnerability required for effective place-based climate adaptation.

- Temporality is important. Place is not fixed, but changes over time, together with the community that inhabits it.

- Discussing and sharing community knowledge increases the likelihood of successful creation and implementation of climate adaptation practices.

- A sense of place can be deployed to build connections between people, across policy and between scales.
