My research team and I conducted a systematic review of climate change communication research over the past 25 years. This post shares our findings and access to the full white paper and conference paper. Our primary findings show that we need immediate, practical research into adaptation and mitigation within local communities. Additionally, we need to make sure we are researching equitably; that all areas of the world are receiving attention.

La vida bajo el cambio climático: los caficultores colombianos informan que sienten caos
El cambio climático es una amenaza real para la cadena de suministro de café colombiano. Hay más de 300,000 caficultores en Colombia cuyos medios de vida se ven amenazados por un clima cada vez más caótico, y adicional a eso, el sector cafetero en Colombia proporciona empleo a más de 2 millones de personas. Llevamos a cabo una investigación con una comunidad en particular, los caficultores de Colombia, para comprender cómo conceptualizan el cambio climático y cómo comunican sus experiencias con él desde su perspectiva y en sus propias palabras.

We conducted research with coffee farmers in Colombia to understand how they conceptualize climate change and how they communicate their experiences with it from their perspective and in their own words.

Wikipedia and the wizards behind the curtain
Perhaps it behooves us to know more about the source of so much of our knowledge. As informal as we may consider our Wikipedia searches, it doesn't change the fact that most of us lean on it regularly.
