Involving the Public in Participatory Scenario Planning

ASU Barrett & O'Connor Washington Center 1800 I St NW 8th Floor, Washington

Making decisions about the consequences and tradeoffs of land management strategies under a changing climate is complex. Co-developing participatory scenarios with the public and decision makers can help plan for these uncertain futures. Join Victoria Keener (Arizona State University) for a discussion of a multi-year stakeholder-intensive process on Groundwater Recharge to simulate impacts of development, conservation, and climate change. The co-development of participatory scenario planning and modeling can accelerate the uptake of complex climate data and projections into local decision making.
