Coastal Erosion at Godrevy – Adaptation in the Context of Local Debates

In chapter 5, I presented four co-existing narratives about Cornwall’s landscapes and the ways in which they influence different actors’ approaches to climate adaptation in broader terms. The Godrevy case study presented in this chapter draws a more concrete picture of how physical adaptation activities are embedded in local contexts and perceived differently by the actors involved. In line with a grounded theory-led approach to data analysis, the choice of this smallerscale case study analysis resulted from the first set of interviews in Cornwall; interviews in which the participating local actors clearly identified Godrevy as the first example of conflict between the regional landscape management organisations when it comes to adapting to the impacts of climate change (cf. section 5.3.1).
