ONLINE RESOURCE: Rural Institutions and Climate Change
The objective of the Rural Institutions and Adaptation to Climate Change website is to explore, discuss and pool information on how vulnerable populations cope with and adapt to climate change, and the role of local institutions in enhancing their capacity to adapt. This will be initiated through a Discussion Forum and will bring together practitioners, policy makers and the academic community to share information, best practice and experience on issues related to local institutions and climate change. Following the Discussion Forum, the website will continue to provide a repository of knowledge, and a platform for exchange of information on events, studies, institutions and experience relevant to this topic.
