Abstract

Policies and decisions for mitigating and adapting to hazards are not taken in a hypothetical world populated by rational actors free of institutional incentives, but rather in an institutional context marked by divisions of responsibility, poor communication pathways, and at times conflicting objectives. Indeed these factors could create a particular burden on the use of multiple-hazards assessment, since it may requre the cooperation of multiple agencies. This task will focus analysis on one or two of the real-world test cases, in order to appraise the institutional landscape for mitigation and adaptation, find the barriers, and suggest solutions. It will rely on a desk analysis of legal and regulatory documents, leading into stakeholder interviews and surveys. This will require multiple visits to up to two of the case study sites, in order to meet with key policy-makers and decision-makers. A final workshop held in each site will serve first to validate the findings from the desk study and stakeholder interviews, and second to identify robust pathways for modifying the institutional landscape to overcome the current barriers.
