This manual is for extension professionals, community organizers, local planning officials, teachers, or anyone else whose task is to help individuals, families, businesses, communities, and local governments think through the meaning of climate change on the local scale, assess vulnerabilities, devise strategies for improving resilience, locate tools and resources that will help, and develop and implement plans for adaptation.
Appendices include an adaptation checklist, talking points for leading adaptation discussions, a checklist of items to take to a village meeting, a roughly?drafted sample community adaptation plan, selected resources, sample preparedness measures, and samples of goals, objectives and measures. The final appendix contains a set of worksheets with spaces for stakeholders to enter answers to questions about observed climate?related changes, adaptation measures, risks, and others.
