After two-year effort to strengthen community adaptation capacity to the negative impacts of climate change, USAID Mekong Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change (USAID Mekong ARCC) project engaged World Resources Institute Vulnerability and Adaptation Expert, Moushumi Chaudhury, to capture lessons learned from implementing the adaptation plans across five community sites in the Lower Mekong Basin over the course of 2015.

The report entitled, “Lessons from Implementing Adaptation Plans in the Lower Mekong Basin” targets government agencies and donors who would like to know what adaptation activities reduce vulnerability in order to help scale such activities. The report also targets project implementers so that they are aware of the various barriers and enabling factors that can influence successful implementation of adaptation projects. The report analyzes community adaptation plans across all five sites, USAID Mekong ARCC quarterly reports, and findings from interviews with project implementing partners in all four countries.
