Climate adaptation planning provides an opportunity to enhance the adaptive capacity of stakeholders across multiple levels. However, reviews of standard top-down and bottom-up approaches indicate that the value of multistakeholder involvement is not fully recognized or incorporated into guidelines. Focusing on provinces in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea within the Coral Triangle region, we present a novel integrated top-down and bottom-up planning approach.
This study analyzes stakeholder perceptions of how the Coral Triangle has benefited from the US CTI Support Program and what tangible outcomes at the regional scale have been cascaded to the local scale. The study also provides important guidelines for future projects in terms of implementation strategy and thematic needs.
