Dynamic adaptive management process: A facilitator's guide

Source(s):  University of Technology Sydney (UTS)

Supporting community adaptation to water shortages in Kiribati

This handbook aims to build the skills that community facilitators need to lead participatory decision-making processes such as workshops to plan for the delivery of basic services under a changing climate. It provides facilitators with a range of tools for leading conversations at the community level. It will also help to build skills and knowledge that will enable the community to participate in identifying solutions, which are relevant and appropriate for their context.

The multi-criteria analysis (MCA) approach presented here can be used to aid decision-making in complex situations in which multiple objectives and viewpoints are considered. The tools in the handbook can assist in planning for future uncertainty at the local level. In addition, while the handbook focuses on the adaptive management of drinking water

resources, the tools and processes that are presented are flexible enough to be applied to a range of situations.

The handbook provides an outline of how to:

  • do a simple MCA of viable water supply response options;
  • better understand the impacts of climate change on these possible water supply options;
  • identify indicators that show when a new water option should be.
