The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

CRIDA Publication Launch Event

Climate Risk Informed Decision Analysis, or CRIDA, is a newly published methodology for addressing deep uncertainties within water resources management planning and decision making. The CRIDA guidance manual was launched in late October 2018 as a co-publication between UNESCO and the International Center for Integrated Water Resources Management (ICIWaRM), a UNESCO center in the USA.

Deltares, AGWA, the Netherlands Environment and Infrastructure Ministry, the World Bank, and many others have led the development of CRIDA over the years. CRIDA has been implemented in more than a dozen countries, from small scale water utility projects to national water management policy and transboundary flood control issues.

During this event hosted by Millennium Challenge Corporation, participants will hear from CRIDA's authors as well as institutions and individuals with experience implementing CRIDA through real world case studies.
