PUBLICATION: ActionAid Report: Understanding Climate Change from Below, Addressing Barriers from Above

ActionAid has released a report, “Understanding Climate Change from Below, Addressing Barriers from Above” that discusses the natural calamities that are interfering with development at the community level. The Pilot Project took place from 2008 through December 2010. Data was collected by focusing on the interaction of traditional local knowledge and scientific knowledge in the regions of the nation that require adaptation to extreme weather events such as floods, droughts, cyclones and storm surges. The report discusses the findings from the research project, analyzes the ability of communities to mobilize for climate change adaptation, and suggests future steps on the policy level to further these efforts.
