Adaptive Livelihoods and Development

Builds on previous projects in PNG and Indonesia that developed an integrated top-down and bottom-up participatory planning approach to identify potential future development trajectories, impacts on ecosystem services valued by communities, and ‘no regrets’ livelihood adaptation strategies designed to achieve desired development in spite of future uncertainty.

Ecosystem Change and Adaptation

Examining how the adaptation pathways approach can be used in situations where climate change is driving major shifts in ecosystems: their structure, how they work, and their constituent species. To date, we have published two case studies: on adaptation services in the Murray-Darling Basin under climate change and on adaptation pathways and services for montane forests under changing fire regimes.
