Abstract [en]

This quantitative study is a part of the research project The insurance industry and climate change: Short- and long-term consequences of home owner's understandings of risk, ability to pay and risk behaviour. The purpose of this paper is to analyse home owners’ perceptions and behaviours related to climate risks. The research question that the study seeks to answer is ‘What impact does social and spatial structures as gender, class, family status and housing region have for home owners’ perceptions of climate risks and precautionary behaviour related to climate change adaptation?’. To investigate this, a national survey was sent out to 3000 people, which resulted in a response rate of 30 percent.54 percent of the respondents are residential homeowners, and compose the core respondents of this study. Some preliminary results show that the respondents perceive climate change as a relatively sever risk compared to other kinds of risks, but at the same time are not very active in taking responsibility or otherwise acting to adopt society or their own homes to climate change. These results are further analysed and discussed using social and spatial factors.
