Compilation of 50 Programs for Use in Community Based Adaptation Projects

50 Programs and Activities for Use in Community Based Adaptation Projects

 I am pleased to announce a new compilation of 50 programs for addressing challenges in community based adaptation and participatory forest restoration projects.

We have selected a range of solutions from analyzing CBA field projects that we feel represent the best programs being used successfully in the field today.

Because of universal challenges faced by communities in adapting to climate change, the majority of these programs have a strong connection to water use management, forest restoration, livelihoods, agriculture, and building community resilience.

The programs and activities are organized in the following categories:

  • Water
  • Forestry
  • Livelihoods
  • Agriculture
  • Disaster Risk Reduction and Preparedness
  • SIDS and Coastal Challenges
  • Health, Hygiene and Nutrition

Use: After assessing community vulnerabilities, CBA field staff can search the program list for appropriate activities for their projects. Many of the programs have a number of alternative activities to give options to field staff for customizing their own programs to fit a specific context. I hope that you enjoy this new resource. I also look forward to your feedback, along with ideas for any additional programs and activities that you may want to submit to the list.
