Guidance on adaptive decision making for addressing compound climate change impacts for infrastructure

This guidance has its origins in a proof-of-concept research project funded by the Deep South National Science Challenge – Adaptive tools for decisions on compounding climate change impacts on water infrastructure. The project was grounded in two real-life case studies developed with Wellington Water and Watercare personnel and lead by NIWA and PSConsulting Ltd to test a set of methods that can address the impacts of compound hazards on infrastructure at or near the coast. This guidance gives infrastructure providers the tools to grapple with the risks and uncertainties that arise from ongoing and progressive climate change.
