By focussing on how decision-makers can account for future uncertainty, the recent construct of adaptation pathways provides a potentially useful approach. Its core principles are the recognition of multiple stakeholders and their competing values, goals and knowledge, the need to identify and implement both incremental and transformative strategies, and the sequencing of decisions over time to avoid foreclosure of options and to minimise risks of mal-adaptation. The webinar is part of the Global Climate Change Week, held from 10 ‒ 16 October 2016.
