Climate change and resource management


Climate change is an urgent environmental and social challenge. Social, political, and economic drivers - and ultimately human behaviour - are all significant contributors to climate change, meaning that the social sciences are crucial to tackling the challenges of the climate crisis.

Oxford’s social sciences researchers are working across a range of disciplines and in collaboration with climate scientists to contribute to global efforts on climate change, including the some of the biggest challenges presented by climate change – and some you may not have thought of. Here you'll find news, expert insights, events and activites, and links to further resources about the ways in which Oxford's social scientists are combatting the climate emergency.
