    Objective:

    This publication provides practical information on mainstreaming climate change and disaster risk reduction in the Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CLUP) process. Key concepts and frameworks are discussed as well a focus on planning risks. The potential impacts of climate change to the relevant sectors of the CLUP are visualized in impact chains which structure climate-related information as a means to understand how climate change may trigger effects relevant to land use planning.

    Objective:
    Approach:

    This desk-based assessment documents the current state of knowledge and key information gaps on the impacts of climate change on social and biophysical systems of West Africa. It then assesses regional institutions for their adaptive capacity to help countries adapt to climate impacts. Finally, the report outlines areas for potential engagement for additional research and scoping on West African coastal climate impacts.

  • Participatory subnational planning for REDD+ and other land use programmes: Methodology and step-by-step guidance

    Type: 
    Publication
