Climate Resilient Development in 2051: For whom?

Climate resilient development are pathways that emerge through efforts to achieve sustainable development while avoiding dangerous climate change. Looking back at 2021, Schipper, Carr, Eriksen, Carril, Glavovic and Trisos realise that climate resilient development is much more complicated than first assumed. It is an uncertain process that involves value-laden and ideologically charged decision-making. How can climate resilient development be fair, just and sustainable? And for whom?

Locked-in: Revisiting coastal adaptation policies in the Maldives

Geronimo Gussmann revisits the underestimated ability of the Maldives to adapt to sea-level rise. Floating communities, land reclamations and the fortification of islands kept the islands habitable. Nonetheless, the attractiveness of the Maldives as a high-end tourism destination decreased drastically, leaving the islands economy paralyzed. The Maldivian population might soon face costal adaptation limits that raise difficult questions about the future of the Maldives.
