Mainstreaming the adaptations and reducing the vulnerability of the poor due to climate change


This paper reviews some of the options for reducing the vulnerability of the poor through integrated climate change adaptation strategies. It explains the climate change effects on agricultural production, adoption experiences in the context of sustainable livelihoods, integration of structural and nonstructural measures, amelioration effects and their costs, and the role of informal institutions in implementation. It states that adaptation to climate change impacts is increasingly being observed in both physical and ecological systems as well as in human adjustments to resource availability and risk at different spatial and societal scales.
