Adaptation to Climate Change in Marine Capture Fisheries AgEcon
Grafton, R. Quentin.
This Research Report responds to the challenge for marine capture fisheries of how and when to adapt to climate change. The report presents: (1) a set of fisheries climate change policy options (2) a risk and vulnerability assessment tool and management decision-making framework; and (3) ex ante and ex post climate adaptation possibilities in the marine environment. The report also includes: (1) a discussion of how management objectives and instruments influence resilience and adaptation; (2) a decision-making process to assess vulnerabilities to climate change and to manage adaptation responses; (3) an inter-temporal framework to help decision-makers know when to adapt; (4) a risk and simulation approach to confront the uncertainties of the possible...

Can sense-making tools inform adaptation policy? A practitioner’s perspective Ecology and Society
Milne, Kyla M. G.; Nova Scotia Environment; milnekm@gov.ns.ca.
As governments struggle to find solutions to complex problems like climate change, policy makers look for tools that can capture complexity and elicit insight. I explored the application of one such tool, known as “SenseMaker,” in helping Canadian policy makers understand the factors that enable or hinder climate change adaptation in Canada. I have reflected on the usefulness of SenseMaker and of a multiperspective, multimethod approach to investigating perceptions and experiences of adaptation. The challenges and advantages of applying this analysis in government were explored, and data findings assessed for their impact on policy. Findings showed that although the approach has promise, further work and testing are needed before...

Climate adaptation, institutional change, and sustainable livelihoods of herder communities in northern Tibet Ecology and Society
Wang, Jun; Peking University Shenzhen Graduate School, Key Laboratory for Human and Environmental Science and Technology, Shenzhen, China; junw0813@gmail.com; Wang, Yang; National Climate Center, China Meteorological Administration, Beijing, China; wangy8610@gmail.com; Li, Shuangcheng; College of Urban and Environmental Sciences, Peking University, Beijing, China; scli0815@gmail.com; Qin, Dahe; National Climate Center, China Meteorological Administration, Beijing, China; dhqin4015@gmail.com.
The Tibetan grassland social-ecological systems are widely held to be highly vulnerable to climate change. We aim to investigate livelihood adaptation strategies of herder households and the types of local institutions that shaped those adaptation strategies. We examined the barriers and opportunities for strengthening adaptive capacity of local herder communities. We designed and implemented a household survey in the herder communities of northern Tibet. The survey results showed that migratory grazing has become less feasible. Storage, diversification, and market exchange have become the dominant adaptation strategies. The adaptation strategies of local herders have been reshaped by local institutional change. Local governmental and market institutions...

Climate risk management based on climate modes and indices - the potential in Australian agribusinesses AgEcon
Best, Peter; Stone, Roger; Sosenko, Olena.
Global and hemispheric climate indicators have proved useful in many countries for characterising intra- and inter-annual variability in climate processes, agricultural output and biomass production. They also form the basis of successful seasonal climate and production prediction systems for the probability distributions of allied parameters such as rainfall or crop yield. Climate risk management via derivative, insurance or bond instruments has only recently incorporated non-local climate parameters such as "teleconnection" indices in payoff functions and overall design. A feasibility study of using the Southern Oscillation Index in weather derivatives for the Australian wheat industry has suggested several such climate-anomaly indicators as suitable...

Implementation arrangements for climate adaptation in the Netherlands: characteristics and underlying mechanisms of adaptive governance Ecology and Society
van Buuren, Arwin; Department of Public Administration, Erasmus University Rotterdam; vanbuuren@fsw.eur.nl; Keessen, Andrea M.; Utrecht Centre for Water Oceans and Sustainability Law, Utrecht University; a.m.keessen@uu.nl; van Leeuwen, Corniel; Department of Public Administration, Erasmus University Rotterdam; leeuwen@fsw.eur.nl; Eshuis, Jasper; Department of Public Administration, Erasmus University Rotterdam; eshuis@fsw.eur.nl; Ellen, Gerald Jan; Urban Water and Subsurface Management, Deltares; geraldjan.ellen@deltares.nl.
Adaptation to climate change is a rapidly emerging policy domain. Over the last decade we have witnessed many attempts to enhance the climate robustness of agriculture, urban development, water systems, and nature to an increase in flood and drought risks due to a higher variability in rainfall patterns and sea level rise. In the vulnerable Dutch delta, regional authorities have developed adaptation measures that deal with flood risk, the availability of fresh water, subsidence, and salt water intrusion. In view of all the uncertainties that surround climate change, scientists emphasize that it should be possible to make changes when conditions change or insights evolve. The concept of adaptive governance has been introduced to facilitate the process of...

Lattice-work corridors for climate change: a conceptual framework for biodiversity conservation and social-ecological resilience in a tropical elevational gradient Ecology and Society
Townsend, Patricia A; University of Washington; ptownsen@uw.edu; Masters, Karen L; Council on International Educational Exchange; KMasters@ciee.org.
Rapid climate change poses complex challenges for conservation, especially in tropical developing countries where biodiversity is high while financial and technical resources are limited. The complexity is heightened by uncertainty in predicted effects, both for ecological systems and human communities that depend heavily on natural resource extraction and use. Effective conservation plans and measures must be inexpensive, fast-acting, and able to increase the resilience of both the ecosystem and the social-ecological system. We present conservation practitioners with a framework that strategically integrates climate change planning into connectivity measures for tropical mountain ecosystems in Costa Rica. We propose a strategy for doubling the amount of...

The Influence of Forums and Multilevel Governance on the Climate Adaptation Practices of Australian Organizations Ecology and Society
Bates, Lorraine E.; CSIRO Social and Economic Sciences Program; lbates@iinet.net.au; Green, Melissa; CSIRO Social and Economic Sciences Program; melissa.green@csiro.au; Leonard, Rosemary; CSIRO Social and Economic Sciences Program; rosemary.leonard@csiro.au; Walker, Iain; CSIRO Social and Economic Sciences Program; Iain.A.Walker@csiro.au.
To date, there are few regulations and policies relating to climate change in Australia. Uncertainty about the timing, structure, and potential impact of proposed legislation such as a national carbon abatement scheme, is leading to planning delays across the country. To assist with these policy uncertainties, organizations can embed themselves in multilevel governance frameworks that inform, structure, and facilitate strategic development, planning, and action. As part of these networks, organizational representatives also engage in formal and informal forums, a type of interorganizational relationship, which can include industry task forces, policy development committees, interagency groups, and specific climate change committees. Forums constitute an...
