Monika Sharma [8] | Suresh Attri | Kirtiman Awasthi

Abstract: The Capacity Building Programme-Climate Change Adaptation in Rural Areas of India (CCA-RAI) in India was supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft f?r Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change, Government of India. The project was implemented in the state of Himachal Pradesh, and one of the priorities identified after the exhaustive consultations is the building of capacities at different levels of governance. This paper briefly summarises and discusses how the capacity development programme as part of the CCA RAI project helped in moving a step ahead towards resilience. It focuses on understanding the impacts of climate change and potential adaptation options for Himachal Pradesh in rural areas. The capacity development programme supported enhancing the skills of technical officers at the national and sub-national levels in order to estimate the economic costs and benefits of climate change impacts, as well as appropriate adaptation options. Understanding the perception and knowledge about loss and damage from climate change at the micro and sectoral levels requires detailed information from households as well as within the sector. This data captures the contribution to productivity and the potential vulnerabilities these households face in rural areas and in different sectors. The results of this report and the response proposed are based on detailed primary and secondary information collected for the purpose of understanding the impacts of climate change and adaptation options from the bottom up.
