The PACC country projects showcase best practice adaptation within the 14 countries. Four projects are focusing on coastal zone management, four on food production and food security, and six on water resources management.
The projects are community oriented and gender sensitive. They are using the latest tools and processes to ensure that they combine the best science available with the realities faced by communities.
Early in the process the project teams carried out vulnerability and adaptation (V&A) assessments to ensure the project addressed the priority needs of the communities in view of the climate risks they face. The projects were also assessed economically using cost–benefit analysis. As the projects progress, the project teams are producing technical guidelines to guide future adaptation work in coastal zone management, food production and food security, and water resources management.
Project activities and outputs are diverse, but all projects are delivering real solutions that work for people and their environments, and help them to face an uncertain future.
