Summary: This presentation explores the role faith plays in supporting climate change adaptation. This will be examined from two perspectives. First, faith will be examined as a personal motivator to face challenges, strengthen resilience and maintain persistence in work. Second, faith as an institution will be examined as an important contributor to resilient communities and policy making. This discussion will also include the presentation of a deliberative democratic framework of nine principles to facilitate in infusion of faith perspectives in climate change decision making.
