Adaptation Framework

key lessons entry points
Key Lessons: Entry points
  • Current climate variability and DRM
  • Awareness raising
  • Doing better on known sustainable land and water management practices
  • Indigenous knowledge and no regret options
key lessons
Key Lessons
  • Climate change further declines the adaptive capacity - need to launch adaptation measures now. BUT HOW to work in a relatively uncertain state;
  • Climate Change Adaptation is location specific and social learning process – learning how to adapt better;
  • Strengthening institutions with clearly determined responsibilities
  • DRR, climate change adaptation and development goes together at the local level
  • strengthening research-development linkages to address the future risks
  • Community based adaptation links bottom up livelihood perspectives and government led top down approaches
  • monitoring on-going adaptation practices, alert on risks of mal-adaptation, and establish links with policy making
  • promote public – private partnership to support inputs
