This scenario planning tool is for a hypothetical Australian coastal zone in the Big Bonanza Region. It is designed for use by governments and communities to explore the governance implications of coastal adaptation.
As the tool relates to a hypothetical coast it will be useful for education and communication support in contexts where the local issues are very sensitive and/or no spatially explicit planning or discussions have yet commenced.
The tool consists of:
- a video which can be found at http://vimeo.com/channels/coastaladaptation
- a map representing Big Bonanza Region
- a scenario that takes place at Big Bonanza Region
- a set of coastal adaption principles designed to guide thinking
- a set of instructions about the deliberation process to be used.
The tool is to be used in a workshop context and is designed to require minimum additional materials: A1 size Post-it notes for the walls and smaller coloured Post-it notes for writing up ideas. Required personnel are a workshop organiser with good working knowledge of coastal adaptation issues, together with an experienced workshop facilitator. The workshop will take a minimum of 2 hours. Time will be required to read through materials.
