Professional practioners with a responsibility for managing the future impacts of extreme weather events whilst balancing with the availability of water for everyday living are having to juggle multiple scenarios. One approach that can enable a smart look into the future is framed around Adaptation Pathways and has been developed by Deltares. This approach supports decision making under uncertainty using Adaptation Tipping Points and Adaptation Pathways in policy analysis.
Recently, Flood CoP participants explored the Strategic Floodplain Management Plan for the Brisbane River Floodplain and it is evident that the 50 plus Actions in this plan will need a mix of means to plan and implement.
This workshop aims to provide an overview of what might be possible using the Adaptation Pathways approach.
So with the Deltares team and invited collaborators, this event aims to:
- Build an understanding of what is the Adaptation Pathways approach and what it can offer:
- Introduce different components of the tool and workshop how it can be applied to the Brisbane River SFMP;
In addition while holding the event at the new Education Precinct at Kelvin Grove participants can be introduced to the recently installed digital sphere and adjacent data wall to better appreciate the role of visualisation as a way to better explore complex issues and spatial information arrays
