Bosomworth, K and Harwood, A and Toorabi, N and Leith, PB and Wallis, P, Developing adaptation pathways for NRM in Southern Australia: a research-practice collaboration, 6th International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts and Responses, 27-28 June 2014, Reykjavik, Iceland, pp. 37. (2014) [Conference Extract]
Through interviews, workshops, observations and reflective practice, this collaborative project is investigating how research can better inform NRM decision-making, what institutions and processes can better link various sciences and NRM planning, and what enables and constrains adaptive planning and implementation in these boundary organisations.
The paper highlights current findings regarding theoretical and practical aspects of planning for climate change in NRM, and the effectiveness of participatory research methods for facilitating transformative change in adaptation planning. It discusses participant demand for fit-for-purpose guiding processes that support robust decision-making, over the need for more technical information and uncertainty reduction. In doing so, the paper highlights an ‘adaptation pathways approach’ as a way of planning for managing for change in NRM.
