Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 81-83)
Summary Decision making and planning in climate change adaptation is challenged by complex, uncertain and contested knowledge. trategies employed to manage theB60365390 range from systems thinking approaches, to dealing with the unknown by focussing on strengthening the resilience of communities. The focus on knowledge tends to underestimate the social dimensions of the decision making process and conceptualises them as being separate from the production of ‘objective’ knowledge because knowledge is inseparable from values, power and vested interests. There is increasing evidence that new decision making structures are required that combine assemblages of different tiers of government, NGOs, the community and the economy to deal successfully with complex problems such as climate change.
