The islands of Eastern Indonesia have some of the highest levels of poverty and food insecurity in the country. Livelihoods are primarily rural and dependent on ecosystem goods and services provided by terrestrial and marine habitats, and are highly sensitive to climate change. Currently no method exists to assess the vulnerability of livelihoods in these islands to climate or other drivers of change such as population growth, or to design 'no regrets' adaptation strategies which lead to benefits under any future scenarios. This project aims to meet this need by developing an approach in the islands of Lombok and Sumbawa, Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB) Province. A research partnership has been established between the AusAID-CSIRO Research for Development Alliance, University of Mataram (UNRAM), BMKG (Indonesian Meteorological, Climatological and Geophysical Board), the Research Institute for Agricultural Technology (BPTP) and the NTB Government’s Climate Change Task Force. In July 2010 - June 2013 the project aims to: 1. Develop and test a participatory research method which can identify vulnerable rural livelihoods and design appropriate 'no regrets' adaptation strategies; 2. Deliver adaptation strategies for case studies of vulnerable livelihoods in NTB and integrate them into development planning; 3. Build the capacity of NTB government, NGOs, research institutions and vulnerable rural communities to adapt to future climate change and uncertainty. The project uses participatory scenario planning workshops with stakeholders from the provincial, district, sub-district and village levels. By combining stakeholders' knowledge of livelihoods' drivers of change, important ecosystem goods and services, and communities' adaptive capacity, the process is generating 'no regrets' adaptation strategies for vulnerable rural livelihoods in NTB. This report summarises the first scenario planning workshop held at the provincial level with 34 Indonesian and NTB Government stakeholders, NGOs and technical experts. A Tim Kolaboratif of 18 scientists from UNRAM, CSIRO, BMKG, BPTP and the NTB Climate Change Task Force contributed downscaled climate and population modelling and other scientific information, which was integrated with stakeholders’ knowledge. Imam Suharto (VECO Indonesia) facilitated the workshop, which was held on 31st May – 2nd June 2011 at the Sanur Paradise Plaza Hotel, Bali.
