ARCHIVE: What are pathfinders?
The 15 coastal pathfinders will be supported with nearly £11 million from the coastal change fund that we announced in June 2009.
Working in partnership with their communities, the pathfinders will road-test new and innovative approaches to planning for and managing change. Through this work, the pathfinder programme is intended to:
- Improve understanding of how coastal communities can adapt to coastal change, and what the costs and benefits of different approaches are; and
- Provide practical lessons and examples that can be shared with other practitioners, particularly on community adaptation planning and engagement and delivery of adaptive solutions.
The pathfinder programme will run from December 2009 until spring 2011. It is a learning programme and throughout this time we will want to capture and share lessons learned from pathfinder projects.
