Leading Practices in Climate Adaptation
“What exactly are leading practices in climate adaptation?”
“Best Practices” is a term often applied to standard-bearing methodologies in a field. However more nascent and rapid-growing fields such as climate adaptation do not have the maturity to label a certain practice as “best” A technique that is popular today may become obsolete in a couple of years. For this reason, the Water Utility Climate Alliance (WUCA) has adopted the term Leading Practices in Climate Adaptation. Leading Practices are practices that are currently popular, but (like everything in the field) may be subject to change.
