This Toolkit is designed to guide users through the process of developing and implementing Community-Based Adaptation (CBA) projects. It is organised around the following, simplified stages in the project cycle: analysis, design and implementation. It also provides guidance on information & knowledge management, including monitoring & evaluation.
The CARE Toolkit for Integrating Climate Change into Development Projects provides practical assistance for adapting design, implementation, monitoring & evaluation to the challenges posed by climate change. Its step-by-step structure helps users design climate-resilient interventions with sustainable impacts. The Toolkit also includes simple checklists to ensure that activities don't inadvertently increase people's vulnerability to climate change. It provides guidelines and recommended tools for all stages of the project cycle, as well as practical examples.
Applying Climate Information for Adaptation Decision-Making: A Guidance and Resource Document
National Communications Support Programme
This guidance document intends to provide countries with a practical tool on using climate information in their decision-making processes. A key concern frequently raised by practitioners is designing sound adaptation programmes under the uncertainties commonly associated with climate change. This guide addresses these issues of adaptation planning under uncertainty of observed and projected climate change.
The Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis (CVCA) methodology helps us to understand the implications of climate change for the lives and livelihoods of the people we serve. By combining local knowledge with scientific climate information, the process builds people’s understanding about climate risks and adaptation strategies. It provides a framework for dialogue within communities, as well as between communities and other stakeholders.
