Adaptation in the water sector

Project 3d

Project staff: Judith Rees

This project focuses on adaptation decision-making.

Decisions to adapt to perceived climate change will be made by myriads of individuals, companies and public utilities.

Just three of the questions being addressed:

What are the barriers to adaptation?

Will private adaptation decisions impose greater risks and costs on to others?

And what role should governments play in ensuring that adaptation decisions are consistent with socio-economic objectives?
