The Pathways Generator Tool (PG) develops pathways maps to define the solution for space and allow comparison of alternative pathways into the future, via evaluations of costs, benefits and co-benefits. Together, DAPP and the PG have been used for flood risk in Miami, water supply in San Francisco and coastal flooding in Aveiro, Portugal, among others.
It allows decision makers to consider longer-term implications and path dependency of near-term decisions to avoid investment regret and lock-in as the uncertain future unfolds. It uses ‘tipping points’ based on bottom-up vulnerability assessments and defined with stakeholders to ensure that system performance is maintained under a variety of futures. It can be used with different levels of analysis from qualitative expert judgement to quantitative modelling results
Cork is working with this tool for adaptation to floods (in connection with developing Climate Resilient Development Pathways).
The tool can be used in the following Triple-A phases:
The Pathways Generator complementary tools are Community Flood Resilience Support System and Climate Resilient Cities Toolbox.
