Special Issue of Participatory Learning and Action

Guest edited by Hannah Reid, Mozaharul Alam, Rachel Berger, Terry Cannon, Angela Milligan

Volume 60, Number 1, December 2009

This special issue focuses on community-based approaches to climate change adaptation, building on the priorities, knowledge, and capacities of local people. It discusses how community-based approaches have emerged, and compares them with other participatory development and disaster risk reduction approaches. It highlights innovative participatory methods to help communities analyse the causes and effects of climate change, integrate scientific and community knowledge, and plan appropriate adaptation measures.
