Abstract [en]

Social Network Theory is suggested as a theoretical frame within the context of adaptation to climate change. Two elements of the theory that prove useful are that network brokers bridge networks and diffuse novel information that helps lead to group innovation. Novel information is needed for adaptation to climate change. Network data from a Bangladeshi community exemplify how a rural network functions during non-climate variable and climate variable times; which actors comprise the network and that brokers inside and outside the network diffuse information for possible adaptation.
