Adaptation to climate change with a focus on rural areas in India

Source(s):  Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)
Ministry of Environment and Forests

The publication provides an overview of the main issues in current adaptation discussions and suggests adaptation options in six different fields related to rural areas: (i) agriculture; (ii) forests; (iii) biodiversity; (iv) water resources; (v) coastal zones; and (vi) disaster risk management. It describes concepts and approaches for adaptation and its integration into development planning using examples from India, as well as other parts of the world, to illustrate how existing theory can be put into practice.

For each of these topics the following questions are addressed:
· How does climate change impact the sector or area of work?
· What does adaptation mean specifically in the sector or area of work?
· Which technical and policy options are available to address adaptation needs at different levels?
· How are adaptation to climate change and mitigation of green-house gasses related in the sector or area of work?
