While local, collective action on risk management is critical for climate adaptation, many communities lack the capacity for robust adaptation planning. This book highlights the potential of role-play simulations for engaging the public and preparing them to act in the face of impending climate changes.
For coastal communities already feeling the impacts of climate change, CBI's book shows how climate risk simulations and structured community dialogue can help accelerate the adoption of risk management measures that everyone agrees upon.
CBI’s 20th Anniversary Symposium brings together an extraordinary, global group of colleagues to generate ideas on how collaboration can help mitigate and resolve present and future conflicts.
Climate change surfaces repeatedly throughout CBI's 20th Anniversary Symposium as a critical factor in understanding the challenges around food, water, energy, and the role of technology.
On its 20th Anniversary, CBI calls for stakeholders to step up their efforts in collaborative dialogue and consensus building to resolve energy debates around the world.
On its 20th Anniversary, CBI highlights how effective collaboration and conflict resolution can lead to better management of water sources for a diverse range of purposes and users.
CBI uses role-play simulations to build the capacity of at-risk towns and cities along coastlines to adapt to the effects of climate change.
How can communities manage the risks associated with climate change and adapt appropriately? In this article, CBI outlines recommendations based on current knowledge of this issue.
Sea level rise is expected to become an increasingly prominent challenge for all levels of government as the climate changes. This paper explores how states and municipalities interact to address sea level rise, providing an overview of the state of practice, reasons for differences in approaches, and strategies for building municipal capacity for adaptation planning and collaboration.
Ferguson shares thoughts on a few of the common challenges that arise when working collaboratively with large groups on complex subjects over several years, how CBI deals with them, and what CBI has learned in the process.
Collaborative scenario planning is a tool that can help decision makers incorporate future risk and uncertainty into decisions that have to be made today. Here's what CBI learned after using scenario planning in Arizona.
