Implementing tools to increase adaptive capacity in the community and natural resource management sectors

The project will work closely with Victorian Government departments throughout the project and establish good direct rapport with core project stakeholders in community service organizations, catchment management authorities and primary care partnerships. Once project stakeholders have been identified, a needs analysis will identify current adaptation capacities and constraints within these organizations.

Up to four adaptation tools will be selected for testing. The in-depth tools trial will deliver new knowledge on the limitations and opportunities associated with each of the tools in the context of facilitating adaptation within the three types of organizations participating in the project.

The tools trial process will also provide the basis for developing an engagement framework that can facilitate the uptake and integration of climate change adaptation among the three types of government service providers and funded agencies.
