The main interview comes from Dr. Patrick Ray of the Univ. of Cincinnati and UMass-Amherst's Hydrosystems Research Group. You'll hear about the concept behind bottom-up approaches to climate adaptation, the World Bank's Decision Tree Framework, and work being done in Mexico City and elsewhere to assess and address long-term climatic and non-climatic risks to water systems and infrastructure.

Water infrastructure is expensive and long-lived. How do we design and plan for resilience if we can’t see what the future holds in terms of climate or other relevant drivers? The World Bank’s Decision Tree Framework is a new tool – one of a suite of “bottom-up approaches” – that embraces uncertainty. It allows users to assess and address long-term climatic and non-climatic risks. In this episode Dr. Patrick Ray explains how the process works, where it’s being implemented, and how institutions can incorporate the DTF into their water management projects.
