The Building Community Resilience through Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) project aims to initiate a process, at community as well as national level, to promote and facilitate better understanding of climate change related risks among vulnerable population with a view to demonstrate models of good practices in community-led adaptation to climate change.
The project has been implemented at the national level, in 8 selected ÔÇ£at-riskÔÇØ communities falling under four districts. These are all communities vulnerable to, or already experiencing the impact of climate change. The project is to run for three years; from May 2011 to April 2014.
An estimated 55,180 persons (many of the beneficiaries are among the most vulnerable households and communities in selected locations) directly benefits from this project. Moreover, all the activities will recognise,incorporate and respect indigenous knowledge and traditional practice and wisdom of people.
