[Extract:] In order to understand how social resilience might be achieved in the face of climate change,it is crucial to consider how people employ everyday ‘local’ and ‘indigenous knowledge’ to deal in practice with uncertainty and risk in their lives. Focusing on responses to climate change discourse in the Pacific , with particular attention to Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), we call for more fine- grained ethnographic studies on how the global discourse of climate change transforms knowledge and practice at the local level.
