This paper examines the general adherence to technocentric approaches in the resilience world, but most particularly in climate-related strategies (both adaptation and mitigation), by taking debates on the relationship between climate change and conflict (or conditions of fragility) as a form of case study.

This research uses three case studies, particularly on Aceh, East Africa, and Darfur, to look at the role of political analysis in analysis of climate change impacts.
