Climate change mitigation Climate change adaptation
Description

Some key implications for those responsible for adaptation decision-making can be distilled from this piece of research. The report structures these according to: recognising the importance of language and communication, valuing the importance of creating spaces for knowledge exchange and consensus building, ensuring access to authoritative, timely and salient climate information, using more accessible concepts such as community well-being as a hook for climate change action, the need to be clearer about the roles and responsibilities of different actors, recognition of the value of existing networks and arrangements at the local level, and also identifying the role that incentives can play in mobilising local action.
