Dynamic Modelling of Climate Change Adaptation Pathways: The Case of Surf Life Saving Australia
MetadataShow full item record
Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) is Australia’s major water safety and rescue authority whose assets and operations are threatened by extreme events and sea level rise. This research aims to explore adaptation pathways and enhance the capacity of SLSA to tackle these threats. To achieve this aim, systems dynamics is used to test conceptual models developed by stakeholders. These models are designed to connect climatic drivers, impacts on assets, operations and communities, and strategies to improve adaptive capacity. The initial outcomes of 4 case studies across Australia will be presented.
