Community Based Adaptation Framework & Project Toolkit

CARE promotes Community-Based Adaptation (CBA) to climate change because we believe it to be a highly effective approach, for the following reasons:

  • Generating adaptation strategies with communities and other local stakeholders improves the uptake and sustainability of the process because communities develop a strong sense of ownership and their priorities are met.
  • Enhancing communities’ awareness and understanding of climate change and uncertainty enables them to create responsive plans and make more flexible and context-appropriate decisions.
  • Embedding new knowledge and understanding into existing community structures expands and strengthens those structures as well as institutional mechanisms.
