The impacts of climate change are quite evident now. The changing weather patterns have affected ecosystem services and food security worldwide. The rural communities that rely on these ecosystems for their livelihoods are most affected. One interesting thing is that the communities posses knowledge and information of their localities that can be useful in developing strategies to adapt to the changing climate.

The CHIESA project worked with the local communities in the Jimma Highlands of Ethiopia, Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and Taita Hills in Kenya to develop community-based climate change adaptation plans. The participants of this year-long process comprised of representatives of women, men, the youth, local community organisations, People living with disabilities, those involved in different livelihood activities in the areas, the local and national governments.
