While many regions across the globe are vulnerable to climate change (Hare, Cramer, Schaeffer, Battaglini, & Jaeger, 2011), planning for climate change adaptation has tended to focus its efforts on biophysical and engineering adaption responses (Stanley, 2010). The social dimension of these kinds of adaptation responses is typically framed around inclusive citizen participation (Chu, Anguelovski, & Carmin, 2016) or community-based governance approaches to climate planning (Forsyth, 2013). For vulnerable groups and geographies exposed to the more frequent and severe effects of climate change, however, broader social adaptations are needed to enable them to participate in and take effective leadership of climate adaptation outcomes (Chu et al., 2016; Dodman & Mitlin, 2013; Warrick, 2011).
