Ecologies of Care in Times of Climate Change

This book investigates and analyses places in Europe, North America and Asia that are facing the immense challenges associated with climate change adaptation. Presenting real-world cases in the contexts of coastal change, drinking water and the cryosphere, Michael Buser shows how the concept of care can be applied to water security and climate adaptation.

Exploring the everyday and often hidden ways in which water security is accomplished, the book demonstrates the pervasiveness and power of care to contribute to flourishing lives and communities in times of climate change.

Michael Buser is Associate Professor of Collaborative Community Practice at the University of the West of England. He conducts socially engaged, interdisciplinary and participatory research on the themes of water security and wellbeing.
