Conflicts in Adaptation in Vulnerable Communities in Nepal and Maldives: Introducing the Adaptation Conflict Framework (ACF)

Becker, Per LU and Phudoma, Lama LU (2017) 77th Annual Meeting of the SfAA
Abstract
Adaptation is regarded as a panacea among policy circles. This paper offers a somewhat different perspective, using life narratives to investigate the conflictual nature of adaptation in and around vulnerable communities in Nepal and Maldives. Our analysis results in a framework with three dimensions: (1) qualitative differences in type of conflict; (2) the relative positions of the conflicting actors; and (3) the degree of manifestation of the conflict. This Adaptation Conflict Framework (ACF) offers the potential to contribute to the identification and analysis of conflicts in adaptation, and to also serve as a guide to prevent and resolve such conflicts.
