The Water Action Track helps accelerate and scale up water actions in climate adaptation. While 90% of climate change disasters are water related, water adaptation drives resilient solutions: water is the leverage for sustainable climate action! @CASsummit2021

With @MinIenW @WorldBankWater @WorldResources @GCAdaptation and our numerous partners worldwide across sector and silos, we work in cities, countries, regions and rivers to build resilience by water adaptation action, together.

A short thread on the UK NDC – and #adaptation.

We sent this letter to the Government a couple of weeks ago.…
The letter contained our NDC recommendation for emissions reduction – 68% by 2030. But take a closer look – there’s a bit more to it.

We *also* made recommendations about #adaptation.
We now have the NDC itself - big tick to @BorisJohnson for accepting our advice on 2030 emissions.…

1/n #Water folks on twitter. The second order draft of @IPCC_CH will be open for review on 4th Dec. Please register and provide your valuable comments. Our author team of 12 LAs and 50+ CA’s have worked hard to gather evidence on impact of CC on water and society. Help us improve
2/n. This is the last time the draft will undergo expert review. Next draft will only undergo government review. Our #water chapter is 60 pages long and covers a lot of material. It may seem a bit overwhelming to review so much material. Some tips based on my own experience.
3/n. Read the 2 pages Executive Summary. Curly brackets at end of each sentence/paragraph tells you which section of the chapter that finding pertains to. Feel free to skip to your chosen section(s) based on your expertise and interest and provide comments for those sections.

Une étude incontournable pour ceux qui travaillent sur la prospective #climat et l'#adaptation :
En version courte, parmi les 4 scénarios d'émissions du 5e rapport du GIEC, nous sommes sur la trajectoire du plus pessimiste, le RCP8.5.…
En version longue :
Le scénario RCP8.5 est généralement présenté comme un scénario "business as usual" mais ça n'est pas le cas si on regarde ses hypothèses : sa croissance est plus rapide que la réalité, le coût des renouvelables trop élevé, la part du charbon pas réaliste, etc.
Cela a conduit à des critiques très virulentes, y compris au parmi des gens qui travaillent sérieusement sur le #climat et voient le 8.5 comme un épouvantail catastrophiste.

doing @instituteforgov #netzero project, colleagues we spoke to are much more familiar with climate change mitigation, emissions targets, than "adaptation" - the rail crash in Scotland shows why this matters.
We've known for a long time that a likely impact of climate change will be more heatwaves and more intense rainfall.. #adaptation means getting ready for both - as part of a wider drive on resilience.
last year's assessment on adaptation by @theCCCuk (yes, they look at adaptation too) was damning.. things had gone backwards over the past 10 years - verdict on UK govt…

Intentional #LargeSystemChange begins with #Conversations That Matter (CTM) among all #agents in the system. Then they experiment with Ways That Work (WTW) and apply what they learn to make Changes That Sustain (CTS) ongoing #adaptation of the overall large system change process.
To improve the performance of a large system, honor its purpose and organizing principles then modify its rules and boundaries. To form an entirely different system, establish a new purpose and organizing principles then write the rules and set the boundaries to align with them.
For a #LargeSystem to improve performance, #ChangeAgents must influence those with the authority to modify its rules and boundaries to encourage all agents to honor the spirit of the system’s original purpose and organizing principles yet bend the rules and extend its boundaries.

Recently, I was asked to give a seminar for @mhclg’s planners on the challenges faced by local authority planners delivering against the #climateemergency, because I work with lots of councils & I’m also Cabinet Member for Forward Planning at @CotswoldDC. So I know some stuff.
First up, I did the ‘we’re all doomed’ bit. You know, the rollercoaster graphs steeply going up and the even steeper graphs of how emissions need to come down.
Then I mentioned about how most plans are running for about another 10-15 years and they need re-writing immediately because most of them pay diddly-squat attention to the ‘what goes up must come down graphs’ from the ‘we’re all doomed’ bit.

We used #AI to "read" & organize a vast body of texts:

Specifically, we reviewed 50 years of research on *organizational #adaptation*

It's a large literature that uses various labels to refer to the same thing (adaptation, fit, congruence, strategic change)

How did that go?
With @andrewsarta & @rudyOrg, we had first reviewed the literature "manually" (a.k.a. using our own brains) but a reviewer asked us:

"how can I be sure you're not biased and projecting your own framework onto the adaptation literature?"

We thus decided to try the #AI route...
Specifically we used *topic modeling*

at the crossroads of unsupervised machine learning & natural language processing

It's a text-mining tool that clusters similar words as "topics" based on how frequently words co-occur within each text (here, each adaptation research paper)
