Decision Analysis for the Resilience Ecosystem

Recipient: Freshwater Future

Project Partners: Sky Island Alliance, Adaptation/Insight, EcoAdapt, American Society of Adaptation Professionals

By bringing the concept of decision analysis into the Resilience Ecosystem, this project will help to increase use of analytic tools and concepts for communities making decisions on climate adaptation strategies.The partnership will develop a series of case studies illustrating how the tools of decision analysis have been applied to climate-related decision making and implement two pilot trainings: one to guide city decision-makers and community members to evaluate tradeoffs and options to upgrade infrastructure and build resilience; and another to support a diverse team of stakeholders developing a climate-smart conservation plan for the desert Southwest.
