dc.description.abstractUnder the basic assumption that national climate change risk and vulnerability are closely linked with a country’s resilience to climate change, we analysed how some aspects of culture are related to risk and vulnerability. Individualism/collectivism, religiousness and cultural heterogeneity are the cultural aspects analysed. Variables quantifying those aspects of culture were consistently correlated with standard risk and vulnerability measures. Further inquiry revealed that religiousness, and to a lesser extent cultural heterogeneity, can contribute to explaining national differences in resilience. We discuss the hypothesis that culture influences trust and a society’s propensity to cooperate, which are important inputs for resilience.en_GB
