The Nature Climate Change recently published a paper proposing new areas of research on justice in climate adaptation. The paper emerged from the memorial symposium held in honor of Professor JoAnn Carmin in December 2014. We hope you find this effort to honor JoAnn to be a helpful contribution, and look forward to continued discussion and collaboration.
