This handbook presents the experience of a participatory social learning process that evolved to support individual and community level climate change adaptation to the myriad of stressors affecting rural people. The handbook was developed as part of a broader scientific research project on vulnerability and adaptation to climate change and other stressors, with a focus on knowledge building. It argues that while the social learning process is presented as a "package", this is more out of convenience than attempting to represent a perfect model. In other words, genuinely responsive social learning processes may well vary in content, but possibly not in core features from what is presented here. This handbook is therefore considered as a framework to guide thinking and reflection around how such processes might unfold, and further provide guidance towards possible approaches and activities that may be appropriate in some circumstances.
