Project Overview

The ISET-International team develops and delivers a range of compelling narratives on how to build the resilience of communities affected by climate change in order to ultimately build policy and public support for further action.

A variety of media forms including videos, blogs, social network engagement, op-eds, presentations, working papers, and journal articles are produced to tell the stories of climate-vulnerable communities. This expansive toolbox allows ISET-International to produce straightforward and accessible media out of complex theories, practices, and frameworks surrounding climate change adaptation and implementation.
