Module 7: Conclusion

In Summary

This module provides some guideposts for developing an engagement plan, which can be populated with a range of approaches, many of which are provided as examples in the list of optional readings and in the case studies. As noted at the outset of this module, climate adaptation engagement can range from tabletop games that support participants’ thinking about specific trade-offs, to values-based reflections and explorations, community capacity building and more. In many cases, combinations of these kinds of approaches may be used throughout a process, depending on its duration and scope. Practitioners may implement activities from across the spectrum of engagement, depending on the needs of participants in a process, the guiding ethical commitments, the available resources, and the stage of the project.

While there is no perfect engagement process there are approaches that are more or less aligned with their intentions and more or less likely generate the kind of community resilience needed to face current and future climate impacts.
