Vietnam: Teo Do’s NGO has built a CBA demonstration farming model
Teo just sent links to educational slide shows that have been developed by his NGO: Consultative & Research Center for Natural Resource Management (CORENARM).
This CBA project in Huong Phong helps improve the adaptive capacities of coastal communities and their resilience to climate change impacts. It also focused on informing service providers, policy-makers and local communities of the learning and findings, in order to improve support to future Community-Based Adaptation (CBA) processes.
To meet the objectives set by the project, CORENARM has built a farming demonstration model to adapt to climate change and bring economic benefits to local people.

There are a number of other interesting CBA articles on their site.

Good job Teo Do and CORENARM!
