CSDi is presenting a compilation of Community Based Adaptation Field Activities—complete with links to source materials and technical information.
The content of field activities is given broadly in following heads:
a. Soil and water conservation for agriculture.
b. Developing water for agriculture.
c. Agriculture in flood-prone or waterlogged areas.
d. CBA techniques for agriculture.
2. Small island developing states.
3. Emergency preparedness and disaster risk reduction.
6. Health & sanitation.
7. CBA project design.
8. CBA participatory inclusion.
9. Long-term investments.
10. General resources.
This collection of 300 CBA field activities began as a resource for our online students in Module 340: Adapting to Climate Change. However, as it grew we decided that it was important to make it more broadly available to CBA development practitioners.
After assessing community vulnerabilities, our CBA students search this list for activity ideas for their projects. Links to web resources on the CSDi site allow them to scope in and find detailed activity field guides or lesson plans for participatory workshops.
CSDi hopes that you enjoy this newly public resource. CSDs also look forward to your feedback and ideas for any additional activities people may like to submit to their list at Online.Learning@csd-i.org
