Climate change will affect the ability for governments to effectively deliver their services to the communities they serve
The extent to which climate change will impact government service delivery will vary in a multitude of different ways – ranging from the effective integration of climate change into the provision of essential infrastructure through to community health and ecosystem management.
Adaptive Futures provides consultancy and support in adaptation, risk assessment, monitoring and evaluation for:
- Local and municipal councils
- State and provincial governments
- National governments
We understand the decision-making contexts that face each level of government.
We will work closely with your government organisation to provide appropriate support for effective adaptation, based on a decision-context, levels of vulnerability, degrees of risk, mitigation co-benefits and an understanding of potential barriers and opportunities for implementation.
Our approach to adaptation planning is sensitive to a Government’s environmental, social, financial and legal obligations.
