• Improve their abilities to know and understand how natural, economic and social systems converge and how they impact each other and how they respond and adapt to change.
  • Enhance understanding of “systems,” and to provide the knowledge and skill base to respond and adapt to systemic changes.
  • Improve their abilities to increase the robustness of our different systems, as well as to increase their resilience and adaptive capacities to anticipated or sudden climatic changes.
  • Facilitate a thorough examination of the fundamental underlying issues of adaptability and resilience by exploring:
    • What makes a system more or less resilient and adaptable?
    • How do adaptability and resilience relate to and affect one another?
    • What are the policy and decision making implications for adaptation and resilience?
  • Forums, round table discussions and theme specific workshops will be held at various times throughout the project.
