The Coastal Resources Center collaborates with USAID and other partners to carry out natural hazard and climate change vulnerability assessments, put adaptation measures into place and share lessons about what works and what needs to be done. This video explores some practical approaches being used right now by our colleagues in several different coastal countries to manage risk and take no-regrets actions to increase their resilience and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The Pwani Project carried out by the Tanzania Coastal Management Partnership and funded by USAID/Tanzania is helping coastal communities assess climate change impacts and find ways to adapt using their own resources and knowledge.

The Guidebook proposes an approach for assessing vulnerability to climate change and climate variability, developing and implementing adaptation options, and integrating options into programs, development plans, and projects at the national and local levels. This is known as a vulnerability and adaptation or V&A approach. The summary presented here is designed for policymakers and others who are interested in the Guidebook’s key messages and may review the full version later or use the Guidebook as a reference document. The summary is organized by the steps in the V&A approach that is recommended in this Guidebook.
