Snack & Learn Webinar Series 2021 - This webinar will explore insights on how the inclusion and engagement of local stakeholders and their stories and values can increase resilience and better manage conflicts constructively in climate adaptation projects.
This Snack & Learn Webinar is for project managers, planners, engineers and other interested working with climate adaptation and stakeholder engagement.
Join Miriam Jensen, Industrial PhD Researcher working in collaboration with WSP in Denmark, the Skanderborg Water Utility and Aalborg University, who will share insights from her recent PHD research: “Innovative climate adaptation in conflictive ridden water catchments: The development of resilient local communities and socio-ecological systems through new adaptive methods to climate adaptation projects.”
During the webinar, Miriam will share insights on how the inclusion and engagement of local stakeholders and their stories and values can increase resilience and better manage conflicts constructively in climate adaptation projects.
The webinar will focus on the case of Miriam’s PhD: the largest river-system in Denmark, Gudenåen, where multiple stakeholders are currently involved in the development of a master plan for the river-system across seven municipalities. The master plan takes as its starting point the creation of increased protection against changes in climate or the environment, especially increased flooding, where multiple stakeholders with diverse interests (such as farmers, nature conservation organizations, museums, etc.) are involved. Miriam will therefore highlight the benefits of a multi-stakeholder approach that can bring added value to technical solutions for climate adaptation.
