This collection of 300 CBA field activities began as a resource for our online students in Module 340: Adapting to Climate Change. However, as it grew we decided that it was important to make it more broadly available to CBA development practitioners.

After assessing community vulnerabilities, our CBA students search this list for activity ideas for their projects. Links to web resources on the CSDi site allow them to scope in and find detailed activity field guides or lesson plans for participatory workshops.

We hope that you enjoy this newly public resource. We also look forward to your feedback and ideas for any additional activities that you may want to submit to the list. To submit additional activities please comment below.
