Understanding adaptive capacity at the local level in Mozambique
Mozambique faces both a rapidly changing climate and development pressures. At the local level, many communities do not have the necessary tools, resources or capacity to adapt, and will require support from government and other development actors. Though most development interventions do not seek directly to address climate change, the impacts of development projects are likely to influence the ability of individuals and communities to respond and adapt. However, few development actors have considered how their interventions are influencing communities’ adaptive capacity, or what can be done to further enhance it.
