A new policy brief written by Maria-Therese Gustafsson and Isabella Strindevall outlines the key findings from a study on private adaptation strategies in the mining industry. The study is funded by the GlocalClim project, and by the Swedish International Development Agency, Sida.

The findings reveal that mining companies mainly address climate risks from the departure of building operational resilience, whereas community-oriented responses are lagging behind. Integrating community risks and adaptation needs in formal risk management frameworks is critical to foster mutual co-benefits and community resilience.
