Planning for Community based adaptation to climate change (CBA)
The e-learning tool on "Planning for Community Based Adaptation to climate change" is prepared to assist development partners, agricultural extension staff, community based organizations and field practitioners, who face the challenge to initiate and facilitate adaptation processes at community level. The tool provides basic knowledge to guide the planning for adaptation to climate change at local level with special emphasis on agriculture.
1. "Climate Change" describes the scientific basis.
2. "Climate change and Food security" discusses climate change impacts on agriculture and food security, and introduces the concept of adaptation to climate change.
3. "Preparing for Community Based Adaptation" introduces steps, methods and tools needed to prepare and launch processes for community based adaptation (CBA) on the ground.
4. "Implementing Community Based Adaptation" provides guidance on how to facilitate local CBA implementation processes.
This interactive tool uses concrete examples from FAO field work and simple exercises to enhance learners' understanding throughout the course. The tool was developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Rome, Italy in collaboration with the Department of Physical Geography at the University of Freiburg (IPG), Germany.
