Developing Governance & Collaborative Capacity
To address the need for additional funding and resources to improve community resilience, SCIPP established a new research theme that identifies “levers” that communities can use to improve climate extreme responses, such as dynamic planning, building codes and zoning, economic development policies, and fiscal, economic, or funding solutions. In addition, stakeholder engagement practices will be designed to increase the collaborative capacity of communities.
The reserach question for this project is: How can existing legal/regulatory, political/policy, administrative, and social structures in the South Central region encourage innovative climate adaptation strategies?
