Adaptation in Diana Region
The Diana region is no exception and is vulnerable to the effects of climate change, both in terms of increased climate variability as well as extreme climate events, including cyclones. Adaptation planning in the region has been limited to date, and there is an increasingly urgent need to develop and implement adaptation measures to increase the climate resilience of Diana region’s ecosystems, and the goods and services they provide to local communities.
This project will work with local communities and authorities to achieve this goal and thereby protect valuable biodiversity resources, while enhancing local livelihoods in the face of future climate change.
