ESPACE: Monitoring and Evaluating Organizational Change to Address Climate Change Challenges

Submitted by Tahia Devissche... 15th March 2011 17:59

Description of project

Under the ESPACE project, partners developed the ESPACE Adaptive Capacity Benchmarking Handbook and Toolkit. The handbook helps prepare and guide users through a review of their organisation to see how far they have developed their adaptive responses to climate change. It is a very useful and easy-to-apply tool to monitor and evaluate organizational change and strategic decision-making. This tool has been initially applied to agencies involved in spatial planning, such as the Thames Estuary 2100 project in the UK, that successfully used this tool to map a set of flood risk management portfolios for the next hundred years using different climate change scenarios. For each portfolio, they defined thresholds and "decision points".
