Local knowledge and local impact

Local knowledge and local impacts

At Practical Action we have been working with local communities to understand what their existing perception of climate change and climate variability are and what impacts these are likely to have on their livelihoods.

For example, we have worked with people in Western Nepal to identify existing knowledge and perceptions of climate changes over the last few years. We have also been working in Southern Bangladesh to look at the impacts of climate change on coastal communities and with pastoralist communities in Northern Kenya to look at the impact of climate change on pastoralist livelihoods. Read more on our projects in Kenya here. More information can also be found in the documents below.
