USAID climate change adaptation guidance manual

Definition

The Guidance Manual is aimed at USAID country missions to assist in the mainstreaming of climate change adaptation in all projects. At present the manual is being tested in Honduras, South Africa, Mali and Thailand in sectors such as agriculture, coastal development and flooding, water infrastructure, and fisheries and livelihoods. Future projects may cover protected lands management, integrated river basin management, and health. The manual leads project designers through a series of steps to help them understand whether their project may be vulnerable to climate variability or change. (adaptationlearning.net/)
