ACTING ON WEATHER & CLIMATE:
NETWORKS AND INFRASTRUCTURE FOR ADAPTATION
AND MITIGATION DECISION MAKING (WP2)

FOCI’s Work Package on ‘Networks and Infrastructure for Adaptation and Mitigation Decision Making’ focuses on infrastructures designed to facilitate planning around weather-driven hazards and climate change. Central to these activities is recognition that fostering coastal community sustainability in the context of a changing climate requires i) relevant, reliable guidance on anticipated climate impacts; ii) resources to identify and communicate weather hazards as they happen, and iii) availability of viable, cost-effective adaptation options. Designing infrastructures to meet these is best done through co-production of knowledge by practitioners (e.g. forecasters, climate scientists, engineers) and stakeholders, ensuring that resulting guidance is relevant and inclusive of diverse perspectives.
