Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis Report: South of Thailand
Building Coastal Resilience to Reduce Climate Change Impact in Thailand and Indonesia (BCR CC)
To support coastal communities in their adaptation efforts to changing environmental conditions, CARE Deutschland-Luxemburg e.V. in cooperation with Raks Thai Foundation (RTF) and CARE International Indonesia implemented the three-year project funded by the European Commission: “The Building Coastal Resilience to Reduce Climate Change Impact in Thailand and Indonesia” (BCR CC). BCR CC aimed to strengthen the capacity of coastal authorities and civil society organizations to enhance resilience to the negative aspects of climate change in the target areas.
CARE has developed a methodology of “Climate Change Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis” (CVCA) which guides communities to identify climate change related changes and actions which already have been taken. This analysis report compiles findings from the interviews and discussions in individual, household, community, sub-district, provincial and national levels as prescribed in the handbook, and also presents guidelines for building capacity of communities to adapt to climate change. These guidelines may be of use for study by relevant individuals and for project planning and implementation as appropriate in the months and years ahead.
