Short summary
We explore climate change adaptation planning from a justice perspective. We draw on the growing literature on the politics of adaptation and on justice theories and highlight the need for incorporating the distributive, procedural and recognition justice dimensions in adaptation planning. Adaptation to climate change is reframed as a set of temporal, spatial and socio-political choices that have significant justice implications.
