The well-documented threats posed by climate change are serious and potentially devastating to the global community, and especially severe for disadvantaged communities in developing countries. Ensuring that poor people can adapt to climate change and benefit from mitigation measures such as payments for carbon sequestration requires more than technology. Key institutions must also be in place. CAPRi research examines the institutional arrangements for adoption of climate-smart agriculture and ecosystem service arrangements, and what needs to be done to ensure that poor people, especially poor women, are not excluded.
Recognize the importance of collective action for successful mitigation and adaptation strategies
Ensure that tenure insecurity does not exclude the poor from mitigation and adaptation strategies
Consider various levels of governance in designing and choosing mitigation and adaptation strategies
