    At a recent conference and planning workshop sponsored by the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine, participants took part in a climate risk management exercise to define possible climate change scenarios. They were given lists of risks, impacts, and vulnerabilities as tools to imagine viable responses. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill describes the exercise and explains the scenarios and how they might be transformed and implemented as plans for action. And he argues that the need for risk management is necessary, regardless of the climate change debate.
