Community-based adaptation to climate change

Scientists are clear that climate change is happening, and that it is due to emissions of greenhouse gases produced largely by industrialised countries (IPCC, 2007). Those likely to be worst affected are the world’s poorest countries, especially poor and marginalised communities within these countries. Ironically it is these poor countries and people who have contributed
least to the problem of climate change, because of their very low greenhouse gas emissions, but who will suffer most from its consequences.
