Adapting to climate change. Challenges and opportunities for the development community
This document tries to improve understanding of adaptation to climate change for development agencies, their partners and main stakeholders involved in development. After a short introduction to the challenges of adaptation and the reasons why development agencies should focus on it, the document presents a series of development programmes on adaptation. They show the range of practices that can accompany adaptation projects in different sectors: water, health, agriculture and food security, education, community development. In the domain of food security and agriculture, the two projects described are on conservation farming in Zambia and on strengthening social solidarity networks in Mozambique.
