This Legacy Report on "Planning and Implementing Rural Adaptation Initiatives in the Lower Mekong: Methods Applied to Integrate Climate Science and Local Knowledge" presents an analysis of the community adaptation initiatives in two parts. The first section provides an overview of the methods used for site-specific research, community engagement, and planning prior to the commencement of the pilot adaptation actvities. It includes explanations of individual methods, and provides illustrative results from employing these methods with communities at the site level. The second section focuses on the specific adaptation strategies chosen for implementation within the pilot sites, provides an overview of results, and presents lessons learned from piloting the adaptation activities.
The report should be useful to those working with communities on climate change adaptation including, but not limited to, NGOs, international aid organizations, government agencies, and research institutions.
