As climate change adaptation rises up the international policy agenda, matched by increasing funds and frameworks for action, there are mounting questions over how effective adaptation can be designed and implemented and of what ‘good’ adaptation looks like. Community-based adaptation (CBA) is one growing proposal that argues for tailored support at the local level, to enable vulnerable people to identify and implement community-based responses to climate change themselves.

This book presents chapters by prominent adaptation and development theorists and practitioners, which address these challenging questions. Combining research and experience from the fields of climate change and development, this book presents cutting edge knowledge that moves the debate on CBA forward towards effective, appropriate, ‘scaled-up’ adaptive action.
