Details

This project aims to:

  • review evidence on community engagement on climate adaptation and use the findings to design the next phase of research
  • design an innovative community engagement programme for two communities in areas where long-term management is complex and contentious - this will include one inland and one coastal location
  • deliver, evaluate and monitor the first 18 months of the community engagement programme
  • produce and disseminate engagement tools to aid collaborative decision-making in areas where long-term management is complex and contentious
