The writing of “Building Climate Resilience: A Training Manual for Community Based Climate Change Adaptation” was inspired a few years ago during a climate change adaptation symposium in Thailand, where much of the discussion behind the stage was over a lack of a clear adaptation mindset in rural development initiatives. Many institutions were posing actions that, seemingly, only held the tag climate change adaptation, and lack a clear focus on adapting to climate related hazards. Rather, actions were addressing poor development, governance, and land use management practices. Understanding the urgency and need to address the aforementioned, and a need to bring a more integrated development approach to climate change adaption, in 2009, SOFEDev was approach by the Adaptation Knowledge Platform to develop a focus approach to assessing climate change impacts, adaptive capacities, and enabling environments for adaptation within rural poor communities, and amongst their development services providers.
