  • Summary

Community-based approaches are becoming increasingly widespread in climate change adaptation initiatives in developing countries. These approaches have been adopted in programs dealing with natural disasters, promoting sustainable agriculture, ensuring water and food security, and developing resilient livelihood solutions in climate vulnerable communities. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the principles of resilience offer additional tools to explore opportunities for integrative, cost-effective, and resource-efficient models of climate change adaptation. This chapter deconstructs key concepts and definitions related to community-based climate change adaptation and community resilience and presents an integrative framework to foster the development of locally relevant, culturally appropriate, and resource-efficient solutions.
