This chapter presents a conceptual framework for investigating the interactions between global environmental change and globalization. The double exposure framework shows how the two processes are continually transforming the context in which individuals regions, communities, and social groups experience and respond to change. The framework raises critical questions about human security that are often ignored in the separate discourses on each process: Who is negatively or positively affected by both global environmental change and globalization? How does each process influence vulnerability and capacity to respond to the other process? In what ways does globalization contribute to global environmental change, and vice versa? What are the implications of these interactions for efforts to promote sustainability? By demonstrating how the two processes overlap and interact, the double exposure framework captures the multi-dimensional character of the changes taking place under the both global environmental change and globalization.
