The overall goal of the project is to improve the livelihoods and adaptive capacities of the vulnerable rural communities to the adverse impacts of climate variability and change. The project is conceived of as a pilot project designed to test a two-pronged approach to adaption. The first prong is development and testing of technical adaptation solutions for possible integration into the public watershed and forestry management programs.  The second prong of this project’s test approach is development and implementation of financial instruments, i.e. micro insurance and weather derivatives for climate risk management.
