This paper focuses on some outcomes of a year-long participatory action research project dealing with multi-party collaboration in an area where risk for human communities is high adaptation to climate change. The researchers worked with a government body to develop their capacity for collaboration between their different sections and with relevant stakeholders, so that community adaptation to environmental change might proceed in a constructive and creative manner. A major aim was to 'Build knowledge of and capacity for collaborative team work'.
