Why is maladaptation such an important concept?

Dr. Lisa Schipper

Research Fellow,
Environmental Research Institute, University of Oxford

Abstract:

For the last two decades we have been spinning around the same problem with maladaptation – we know what it is, but we rarely know when it is happening in real time. Most examples of maladaptation are only detected after the fact when it is too late to prevent them from doing damage. Still we are fascinated by this concept. This talk addresses maladaptation and its various understandings, and discusses why it matters so much.

About the Lecturer

Lisa Schipper is a research fellow at the Environmental Change Institute and currently leads the IPCC WG2 Chapter on climate resilient development pathways. Having studied adaptation for the last two decades, she has authored important contributions on adaptation and maladaptation but continues to be obsessed with discussing what they mean.
