Save Cambodia’s Wildlife (SCW) conducted a baseline study in Tuek Krahorm commune, Choam Khsant district, Preah Vihear province and in Bos Leave commune, Chitrborei district, Kratie province. In the field survey, there were 108 respondents (62 percent females) from 6 villages in Teuk Krahorm commune and 109 respondents (50.46 percent females) from 8 villages in Bos Leave commune were interviewed.

Rethinking Support for Adaptive Capacity to Climate Change: The Role of Development Interventions

The Africa Climate Change Resilience Alliance (ACCRA) is an alliance of five development partners: Oxfam GB, the Overseas Development Institute, Save the Children, World Vision International and Care International. It was established in 2009 with the aim of understanding how development interventions can contribute to adaptive capacity at the community and household level, and to inform the design and implementation of development planning by governments and non-governmental development partners to support adaptive capacity for climate change and other development pressures.

Indigenous and traditional peoples and climate change

The report aims to improve understanding of the potential impacts of climate change on vulnerable communities and cultures and their associated ecosystems; to identify further research required to reduce the risks of climate change; and to develop appropriate adaptation and mitigation measures, particularly in areas with high risk of socio-cultural impacts. Through this report, IUCN offers some elements that will facilitate integration of socio-cultural considerations in programmes and actions to address climate change impacts.

Future floods of refugees: A comment on climate change, conflict and forced migration

Climate change will have several impacts on the environment which in turn can impact on forced migration and conflict. Gradual environmental degradation and slow-onset disasters such as drought are likely to increase due to climate change. Most vulnerable are developing countries where large sections of the population live directly from agriculture and many of these from subsistence farming. Importantly, adaptation, involving for example different land-use techniques and livelihood diversification, would lessen the need to migrate.

Trade and climate change

This report is the outcome of collaborative research between the World Trade Organization Secretariat and UNEP. It reviews how trade and climate change policies interact and how they can be mutually supportive. The aim is to promote greater understanding of this interaction and to assist policy-makers in this complex policy area.

The winds of change: climate change, poverty and the environment in Malawi

This report is part of a series commissioned by Oxfam national country programmes to explore and highlight the links between climate change and poverty, and between climate change adaptation and development. At a community level, poor communities are worst affected by, and least able to cope, with climate change impacts. The report recommends that the foundation of any initiative to address climate change hinges on communities being aware of the issues, owning the process of adaptation and having the capacity to undertake and maintain adaptation.
