Abstract

Climate change is real and poses a grimmer risk to livelihoods and the environment. Strategic capacity building and knowledge sharing structures are essential for generating positive sum solutions from these generally negative forces. Adoption and adaptation are main responses to climate change and environmental care but transaction costs are substantial. What knowledge is protected and at what cost will guide the balancing of costs and benefits across actors sharing at the river basin level. Knowledge and capacity building using integrated modelling approaches has the potential to become the inputs and outputs of environment care processes-scientific, political and socioeconomic.
