Community-based Climate Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Planning: A Cook Islands Pilot ProjectBy:
Published: October 31, 2011
This publication captures and shares the process, tools, and lessons from a pilot adaptation project in the Cook Islands. The basic idea was to field-test a participatory approach that incorporates local knowledge and engages vulnerable communities in the formulation of adaptation plans that will be operable and most relevant to their circumstances. This document hopes to provide insights into how climate change adaptation may be strengthened and accelerated through community-based risk assessment and participatory planning.
