A number of international donors have in recent years shown great interest in implementing community-based climate change adaptation projects in the Asia-Pacific. This interest has seen a flurry of activity in Asia-Pacific communities to develop and implement on-ground activities in the hope of enhancing adaptive capacity. Through this research I aim to better understand the types of projects that have been implemented, assess their levels of success in safeguarding communities in the face of climate change, and provide a series of lessons that would benefit donors, communities and practitioners alike.
