Research – Systems approach to regional climate change adaptation strategies in metropolises
“Systems approach to regional climate change adaptation strategies in metropolises” by Tim Smith and others at AdaptNet, RMIT was posted on the Australian Policy Online newsletter, 19-05-2008. Please find a brief abstract about the report below.
“This project is developing and testing an integrated, systems approach to assisting the fifteen Sydney Coastal Councils Group (SCCG) member councils in assessing their vulnerability to climate change and the barriers and opportunities associated with adaptation at the Local Government scale. One of the exciting aspects of the SCCG project is the way it has incorporated a top-down approach to vulnerability assessment with a bottom-up, stakeholder-led narrative process. As the project has progressed, there has been considerable interest in the project’s methods and outcomes on behalf of media and stakeholders outside the SCCG member councils and the project partners.”
