You can now listen to the latest episode of the ClimateReady Podcast
, or AGWA's Knowledge Platform
. The latest episode focuses on the application of a new bottom-up adaptation approach known as Collaborative Risk Informed Decision Analysis, or CRIDA, to increase resilience to drought for a water treatment facility in Zambia. The main interview comes from Marc Tkach of Millennium Challenge Corporation
(MCC). Marc discusses the need for adaptation as a means of ensuring MCC's goals of enabling growth to reduce poverty. You'll learn more about the new CRIDA approach as well as the Decision Scaling and Adaptation Pathways methodologies for robust and flexible water management planning.
