      Community Based Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience

      Climate change (CC) threatens progress on development particularly in developing countries because they have the least capacity to cope. Adaptation to climate change in these countries is therefore critical. These adjustments in response to the negative impacts of climate change are necessary as they are locally focused and inexpensive. Adaptation efforts based at the local level address exposure of vulnerable recipients to the adverse impacts of climate change. Community-based climate change adaptation identifies and facilitates local development activities that strengthen the capacity of local people to adapt to the capricious climate. This approach employs participatory processes and disaster risk reduction. Duration 5 days Cost The individual cost for the training workshop is USD 750 for individual participants and USD 650 for groups above 10 participants exclusive of 16% VAT.
