Abstract

[Extract] Most climate change research investigating urban social, economic and institutional contexts has focuesed on household and community vulnerability, and on the adaptive governance and policy tasks at various governmental scales. However, a major policy and knowledge gap exists in the social scientific understanding of private sector developers' and financers' capacity to respond in an effective and timely way to the climate adaptation challenge (Dodson 2010). A vast literature on climate adaptation policy has focused on the role of government actors - state and local - in climate adaptation, but has largely ignored the private development sector, let alone the finacial sector that supports it. Improving our knowledge of the capacity and weaknesses of private urban development and financing institutions in the area of climate change is thus a critical imperative within a wider policy of responsive climate change adaptation. Ignoring the private development sector and its institutional complexities would be to ignore a major potential source of improved adaptive activity.
