Decisions for the Design of Adaptation Pathways and the Integrative Development, Evaluation and Governance of Flood Risk Mitigation Strategies in Changing Urban-rural Systems

DECIDER aims at developing knowledge-based solutions for the design, evaluation and implementation of robust, yet adjustable, adaptation pathways in the context of increasing flood risk in transforming rural-urban-systems. The project uses Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) and its hinterland as a pilot, yet, it aims at facilitating a wider transfer of the results, methods and tools to other coastal cities with similar adaptation pressure. To achieve these goals, DECIDER develops innovative methods for the identification and evaluation of flood adaptation strategies and measures.
