Abstract

Seaview Gracefield is an industrial hub, located in a low-lying coastal area at the confluence of the Waiwhetu stream and the Hutt River near Wellington, New Zealand. Hoping to mitigate the area’s flood risk exacerbated by sea-level rise, the Greater Wellington Regional Council plans to develop an adaptive pathways land-use plan. We created an informative climate scenario for businesses during interviews. We gathered various perspectives of business leaders to gauge the level of awareness and planning regarding future sea-level rise in the area. We encountered a large spectrum of perspectives. In order to generate community engagement, we developed a serious game called the Seaview Sea-level “Sea-narios” game to communicate climate risks to businesses.
