Foundations for Change: Using adaptive management to navigate uncertainty

This report presents lessons from Year 3 of Phase II of the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance work, focusing on how the Alliance structure and culture have allowed us to adaptively manage to ensure continued focus on flood resilience and progress toward our goals, while also addressing COVID-19 needs and concerns. With the Alliance’s commitment to maintain our flood resilience engagement throughout the pandemic, we avoided fully pausing our programs and maintained our flood resilience focus. Our ability to identify pathways for achieving change that have co-benefits for flood resilience and COVID-19 have critically helped us to strengthen our relationships and credibility. Both are foundational to achieving change, as evidenced in previous Foundations for Change reports. The report presents concrete recommendations for both donors and practitioners regarding why and how to proactively implement similar adaptive management elements in development, risk reduction, climate adaptation, and resilience work.
