Description

Abstract:
The Guidebook will assist USAID Missions and development partners to understand the diversity of climate change impacts expected to affect the coastal zone throughout the developing world, and the options that exist for coastal planners and managers to assist coastal communities to begin to adapt to these impacts.
The Guide received considerable input and review by an expert Advisory Committee, and benefitted from feedback received at several training events sponsored by EGAT over the past 18 months, including the recent World Oceans Conference in Indonesia. The workshop provided hands-on training for those involved in undertaking vulnerability analyses, and the design and implementation of adaptation measures around a suite of coastal resource management goals, including:

  • functioning and healthy coastal ecosystems
  • less exposed built environments
  • diversified livelihoods human health and safety
  • overarching planning and governance
