Conflict Management over Natural Resources Capacity Building Program under the Community-based Rural Development Project (CBRDP)
The purpose of this training manual is to provide a capacity building framework and tools to support the technical and operational implementation of the conflict management training component integral to the Capacity Building and Community Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) Components of the World Bank-financed Community Based Rural Development Project (CBRDP). The training is based on a conflict management training package developed and tested in Ghana under the Livelihood Support Programme (LSP) sub-programme on “Natural Resource Conflict Management.”
Developing Institutions and Options for Livelihood Adaptation to Climate Variability and Change in Drought-prone Areas of Bangladesh
FAO and the Asian Disaster Preparedness Centre are guiding a project to assess livelihood adaptation to climate variability and change in the drought- prone areas of Northwest Bangladesh. The project specifically looks at: characterization of livelihood systems; profiling of vulnerable groups; assessment of past and current climate impacts; and understanding of local perceptions of climate impacts, local coping capacities and existing adaptation strategies. It also is developing a good practice adaptation option menu, evaluating and field testing locally selected options, and introducing long-lead climate forecasting, capacity building and training of Department of Agricultural Extension staff and community representatives.
