There are several papers studying climate change concern, but the majority of them are West-centric, and there are few studies for developing countries. Using a database from Pew Global and controlling for socio-demographic variables, we analyze how values, social roles, religiosity, and political orientation affect climate change concern in Turkey. We find that social roles, religiosity, and values are important determinants. In particular, having children and being a homemaker increase climate change concern, as well as holding more egalitarian and postmaterialistic views. Although giving more importance to religion increases concern, our findings regarding political orientation are more ambiguous.
