BWA Consortium Collaborative Program

Climate Adaptation Mission

The Climate Adaptation Mission led by BehaviourWorks Australia (BWA) and its partners explores how systemic behavioural public policy experiments could have a substantial impact on reducing projected harms from climate change.

It is part of the BWA Consortium, which has a focus on identifying shared policy challenges between partners and tackling them with behavioural approaches. 

This Mission leverages the combined reach, resources and expertise of the following BWA Consortium partners: Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (Vic), Sustainability Victoria, The Shannon Company, and the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water, and the Environment.

Mission updates

What's happened so far?

In 2021, we completed Phase 1 of the Climate Adaptation Mission: Scoping & Prioritisation.

This phase of the Mission involved coming to an agreement on the mission scope and choosing priority climate adaptation challenges to address through out co-design behaviour change trials.

For more information on this phase of the Mission, see under Scoping & Prioritisation.

What's happening now?

We are now recruiting for participants to take part in Phase 2 of the Mission: Solution Co-Design.

Through Solution Co-design, our participants will work together in teams to design behaviour change interventions that addresses one of the priority challenges that we identified in the Scoping & Prioritisation phase.

The Solution Co-design phase will run from May-July 2022 where we will provide training and supporting research to help teams turn their ideas into feasible and scalable behaviour change trials.

For more information on Phase 2 of the Mission, and how to register to participant in the co-design phase, see under Solution Co-design.
