Over the past decades, coastal Cambodia has experienced more frequent negative impacts of climate change, including direct effects of severe climate events such as storms and floods resulting in multiple fatalities and significant economic losses. In response to climate change impacts at different spatial scales, adaptation has become one of the focal points of current research and policy developments. Although perceived self-efficacy is a central concept in health communication research, it has recently become significant in understanding climate change responses. This talk will focus on using perceived self-efficacy to understand adaptation to climate change in coastal Cambodia.
