Participatory Research on Impacts of Climate Change in Coastal La Union. The participatory action research examined the social and economic impacts of climate change in five coastal towns of La Union: Sto Tomas, Agoo, Aringay, Caba and Bauang.
Through participatory research methods and parallel trainings on Climate Change Adaptation, Disaster Risks Reduction and human rights, the project empowers coastal communities to assess climate related risks, build adaptive capacity and increase participation in local governance processes.
Policy recommendations were formulated for local government units, drawing on local and international best practice and promoting the human rights based approach.
KADUAMI’s research anchored on a reef-to-ridge approach aims to enhance capacity for climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction at the local level in support of climate-sensitive and rights based sustainable development.
