Climate change poses the greatest direct threat in history to CARE’s vision of a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security. The injustice of climate change is that its negative impacts fall disproportionately on poor communities, who have contributed least to its causes. Within poor communities, women and marginalised groups tend to be particularly vulnerable because they often lack the resources, power and opportunities to adapt.

Adaptation is now recognised as an essential part of the global response to climate change. Based on decades of experience, development actors are increasingly promoting a “community-based” approach that recognises the unique risks faced by poor and marginalised people, as well as their essential roles in planning, implementing, monitoring & evaluating (M&E) solutions. This Toolkit responds to practitioner demands for information, tools and guidance to facilitate the design, implementation and management of Community-Based Adaptation (CBA) projects.
