Ep. 1 - Climate Adaptation Crash Course

Ep. 2 - Decision Making Under Uncertainty

This episode of the ClimateReady Podcast focuses on the uncertainty so often found in the decision making processes related to water management. Climate change, demographic shifts, political and socioeconomic changes all introduce levels of uncertainty that must be dealt with. Dr. Marjolijn Haasnoot of Deltares discusses how this is being addressed through bottom-up methodologies, including a process known as "Adaptation Pathways."

About the Knowledge Platform

The Knowledge Platform is designed to promote and showcase an emerging set of approaches to water resources management that address climate change and other uncertainties -- increasing the use of "bottom-up approaches" through building capacity towards implementation, informing relevant parties, engaging in discussion, and creating new networks. This is an ongoing project of the Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA) funded by the World Bank Group.
