Climate change (CC) threatens progress on development, particularly in developing countries, because they have the least capacity to cope. Adaptation to climate change in these countries is therefore critical. These adjustments in response to the negative impacts of climate change are necessary as they are locally focused and inexpensive. The significance and importance of evaluating vulnerability and adaptation strategies are that it identifies and measures the level of the short- and long-term threats (natural disasters, climate change) and the ability to cope with these threats, guides and supports decision-making, government policies, planning, international aid, and investment, helps and orientates processes for deciding on priorities in strategies and initiatives to reduce vulnerability and adapt and, finally, for defining and applying measures aimed at reducing present and future vulnerability.

Adaptation efforts based at the local level address the exposure of vulnerable recipients to the adverse impacts of climate change. Community-based climate change adaptation identifies and facilitates local development activities that strengthen the capacity of local people to adapt to the capricious climate. This approach employs participatory processes and disaster risk reduction.
