On behalf of CARE?s Adaptation Learning Programme for Africa (ALP), this new policy brief and study by the New Economics Foundation (nef) shows that support to community-based adaptation (CBA) ?where vulnerable communities make informed development and risk management decisions and actions in response to climate change impacts ? is cost effective.

It shows clear social, economic and environmental benefits of CBA across a wide range of modelled scenarios and interventions, when comparing systematic adaptation to a situation with no support to adaptation.  These findings make a compelling financial case for CBA both in conjunction with larger-scale interventions and as standalone activities.
