Capacity building is key to establish sound climate change adaptation processes, as well as for framing adaptation within development goals. This is particularly significant in Community-Based Adaptation (CBA), where empowering communities is fundamental in order to strengthen their capacity to face climate shocks.

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can play a major role for the development of climate change adaptation strategies. Particularly, ICT can be employed in five different levels:
• Observation: data collection at global, national and local level;
• Analysis: data and capacity sharing, as well as interpretation of possible climate change scenarios and system mapping;
• Planning: design of community-based adaptation initiatives.
• Implementation and management: translation of adaptation strategies into action, networking with stakeholders at every level and human/natural resources management.
• Capacity building: awareness raising, advocacy, training and formal education programmes.

Finally, to capitalise the full potential of ICT as a driver for community action, every intervention should be formulated within the Communication for Development (ComDev) framework. A two-way bottom-up and top-down communication system is critical for facing climate change related issues, therefore ComDev is essential to foster community participation, build on local resources and knowledge sharing among different stakeholders.

    • Building capacity in Communication for CBA
      • Communication for Sustainable Development Initiative (CSDI)
      • Background
        • ComDev is already integrated in the Agenda of many institutions, such as WB,FAO,UNESCO...
        • ComDev is used from NRM to conflict resolution, from health to environmental issues
      • However, ComDev is not integrated in CCA
      • Requests
        • Institutions, local NGOs and organizations request to integrate ComDev in CCA projects
        • Local people ask for information about CCA
      • FAO has accepted the challenge to test ComDev methodologies for CCA through CSDI
      • CSDI: a global programme on communication for NRM and CCA
      • Effective applications and management of ComDev strategies, tools and services for CCA
      • Improved capacities and partnerships in communication for sustainable CCA
      Communication for Sustainable Development Initiative (CSDI) – Objectives
      • Innovative communication strategies and services
      • Environmental communication strategies, plans and tools implemented in at least 4 countries
      • Improved knowledge and skills on environmental communication (studies, e-fora, knowledge platforms)
      • Environmental communication projects and initiatives designed and promoted
      • Strategic partnerships on ComDev for CCA and NRM
      CSDI Expected outputs
      • Methodologies and tools
        • Approaches, best practices, and training materials on ComDev for CCA
      • Knowledge sharing and Partnerships

      • Systematize lesson learned and best practices in ComDev for CBA
      • Strengthen capacity through knowledge networks (Central America, Indigenous People, South America, Near Asia) and regional consultations on ComDev for CCA
      • Consolidate and expand the CSDI partnerships
        • Virtual consultation on Communication for CBA (April 2009)
