Adaptation and Livelihood Resilience: Implementation Pilots and Research in Regions Vulnerable to Extreme Climatic Variability and Change

The study explored the social and institutional issues related to climate change adaptation by using array of techniques to generate knowledge on impacts and understand vulnerabilities. During the study researchers identified, analyzed and prioritized pilot measures in collaboration with local stakeholders including local and national governmental representatives using shared-learning dialogue (SLD) techniques. The study has identified specific factors that enabled adaptation. Some of these factors included the degree to which household and regional livelihood systems were diversified, access to basic energy, water, transport, finance, health, communication and other infrastructure as foundations that helped shift strategies and seek low carbon development pathway to support diversification and mobility to adapt to climate change.
