DescriptionThis dataset provides all the material to play "A Decade of Weather", a serious game to understand multiple hazards and risk from climate change on interdependent infrastructure. The game was developed through a co-creation process between inter-disciplinary climate researchers from the University of Edinburgh and adaptation stakeholders as part of a NERC-funded project run in late 2017/early 2018. The co-creation process and insights from the facilitated discussion while playing the game are described in the following research paper: S. Undorf, S. F. B. Tett, J. Hagg, M. J. Metzger, G. Edmond, M. Jacques-Turner, S. Forrest, and M. Shoote, Understanding interdependent climate change risks using a serious game, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS), submitted in 2019 [under review].
