Abstract: This policy brief from Prolinnova reports on the organisation’s investigative work on how poor rural communities develop innovations that enables a stronger resilience to changes in climates patterns. This brief focuses on community-based adaptation to climate change, and the means needed to recognize and document local innovation. A number of example from the field help illustrate Prolinnova’s research (2008 – 2011) into the innovation and creativity processes appearing in local communities that face uncertainty and hardship due to climate-related environmental change.
Note: This brief is based on the report “What can local innovation contribute to adaptation to climate change?” (PROLINNOVA 2011) with inputs from study teams in Ethiopia, Nepal and Niger; and a literature review by W. Honkoop
