Our goal is to improve the resilience of livelihoods and ecosystems to climate change and disasters by building the capacity of stakeholders, particularly those most vulnerable, to participate effectively in ecosystem management and develop appropriate responses to climate change.
Our main areas of work are:
Assessments and research on vulnerability to the impacts of climate change and related disasters
Community-based and ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation and disaster risk reduction
Climate proofing natural resource-based enterprises for sustainable and resilient livelihoods
Organisational and technical capacity building of civil society organisations, communities and resource managers to effectively design and implement climate change projects
Participatory development of climate change and disaster policies and strategies at sectoral, national and regional levels to mainstream climate resilience
