CDKN launches Communicating climate change: A practitioner’s guide as a draft for discussion – and invites readers to share their experiences of communicating climate change in developing countries.

This discussion paper presents the main issues to be considered in an adaptation roadmap for agriculture, with a particular focus on developing countries.

This publication presents a collection of examples of how the EU Framework Programme 7 and Horizon 2020 projects have re-aligned their objectives with those of the Paris Agreement and its 1.5°C/2°C goal. Each project has provided information on risks and impacts of global warming above 1.5°C/2°C and the costs and benefits of adaptation.

All governments in developing countries face the challenge of addressing climate change impacts and identifying the best ways to help their people adapt, with ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) an increasingly popular response.

As extreme weather events become more frequent and stronger, it is critical that policymakers and development practitioners incorporate climate change adaptation objectives into their sectoral policies and plans.

This working paper explores the concept of transformative adaptation for agriculture and why it is needed. It looks at how transformative outcomes could be achieved by aligning adaptation projects along pathways and adjusting planning processes to incorporate longer-term, more systemic approaches.
