How Adaptive Capacity Enables Climate Resilience

Insights from two communities in Northern Ghana

This policy brief presents some of the key findings and lessons for policy and practice from a 2017 study in northern Ghana, which evaluated community based adaptation (CBA) and adaptive capacity in order to offer insights into what is changing in people’s knowledge and practices and what triggers those changes.

The study revisits the LAC framework and offers some reflections about how our understanding of adaptive capacity has evolved, the relevance and applicability of the framework and how its use could better inform adaptation and climate resilience plans and actions, drawing on ALP’s six years of experience of building adaptive capacity in practice and offering some recommendations for priority areas to scale up.
