The Devolution of Organisational Climate Change Responses: A Case Study of Australian Electricity Sector
As a result climate change response is occurring at three interconnected levels: global, national and organisational. Organisational climate change responses are drawn from global responses, which in turn are drawn from national responses. In order to study how organisational responses are devolved from global and national responses, this paper conducted a case study of the Australian electricity sector.
Partnering for Impact: Developing The McKnight Foundation’s Carbon Efficiency Strategy

Social Movements and Market Transformations: Lessons From HIV/AIDS and Climate Change
We identify the global market structures most conducive for social movement-led market transformations. We argue that advocacy collective action is more likely to be successful when the global market structure involves (i) a small number of product markets, (ii) globally integrated product markets, (iii) a relatively concentrated industry with few producers or buyers, and (iv) a source of rents produced through social construction rather than natural or technological barriers to entry.
Action Models for Climate Change Adaptation. Case Study: Agriculture
A climate change negative impact on agriculture is more likely than a positive one. In the process of elaborating a national strategy in this direction it is necessary to create a large enough information and knowledge support that would include options, action models, and also analysis results in terms of national agricultural area and the way in which climate change shall have an impact on agriculture.
Enhancing Adaptation Options and Managing Human Mobility: The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
Case studies are presented of the impact of climate change's resultant rainfall variability on migration and human mobility, through referencing research on households in affect areas. An overview of nations effected by climate changes' management of their citizens' adaptive behavior, including in regard to international efforts in assisting nations address challenges caused by climate changes, is provided.
Microfinance and Climate Change Impacts: The Case of Agroamigo in Brazil
This paper reports an empirical case study on the interface between microfinance and climate change actions. Therefore, by investigating Brazil's largest rural MFI, Agroamigo, we aim at providing an empirical contribution to green microfinance. The main conclusion is that, albeit Agroamigo offers important links to climate change initiatives, it will need to take better account of specific vulnerabilities and risks to protect its portfolio and clients better from climate change impacts.
