The A. focuses on 4 areas that exemplify shifts in engagement with adaptation, stretch themes of inquiry, and delineate zones for analysis and action : (1) reconnecting scale : multiscalar interactions, scalar dimensions of practice, and traversing scales from embodied experiences to the global intimate; (2) destabilizing gender : from gendered vulnerability and adaptive capacity to fragmented identities and intersectionality; (3) repositioning persistent inequalities : from rights to responsibilities, mutual fragility, and human security; and (4) reframing certainty : from climate proofing to limits, traps, and transformative change. Methodologically, the A. advocates for opening space for collective and anticipatory learning, creative envisioning, rehearsing for reality, and dynamic planning in the context of multiple and synergistic stressors, all powerful countervoices to hegemonic integrated modeling and numeric vulnerability indices
