This panel session will open with a critical summary of the case studies presented in the preceding two paper sessions. Empirical findings will be examined within the context of the broader human ecological literature on environmental and climatic variation, exploring their research objectives, theoretical framings, and methodological issues. Building on this discussion, the panel will discuss current trends in the adaptation strategies of local communities to altered environmental and climatic conditions, as well as innovative approaches to enhance those capacities. The panel will recommend future directions for integrative approaches, i.e. transdisciplinary research at the local scale. The discussion will focus on methodologies to co-generate knowledge by communities of practice (e.g. farmers, fishers, gatherers, herders, hunters, orchardists) with communities of inquiry (e.g. geographers, anthropologists, climatologists, ecologists, ethnographers).
