The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

Decision Making Under Deep Uncertainty | Annual Workshop

During the first three workshops, the society’s members have been getting to know each other and each other’s work. Over this time, demand for DMDU work has grown rapidly, and we have discovered common theoretical and practical challenges to applying our methods and meeting those demands. Many of these challenges are not unique to DMU, but apply to other policy and decision analysis methods as well. This year’s workshop seeks to address those challenges and to bring in new perspectives from related fields. We believe that by brainstorming together on the problems we face, our community will grow stronger and our work will be even more equipped to respond to today’s difficult planning problems.

When: 16-17 November
Where: World Bank; Washington DC
How to Register: Registration is closed. The workshop is full.

This year will have a different workshop format. We will hold problem-solving discussion sessions in which 2-4 panelists will lead a discussion with workshop participants to discuss challenges that our community faces and ways to solve them. These sessions will take the place of traditional plenary talks. Additionally we will organize poster sessions during the workshop breaks to hear from participants about their latest work.
