The project specific objective is to ensure that: “Effective climate change adaptation strategies are developed and being implemented in six protected areas and related adaptation issues are integrated into local planning frameworks for associated coastal and island ecosystems by empowered and resourced stakeholders in Colombia, Madagascar and the Philippines.”

Through the fulfilment of the specific objective, the project will have specific and tangible impacts on targeted beneficiaries across the three countries both in terms of direct benefits (improved PA resilience and management and increased community resilience) and indirect benefits (improved climate change understanding and skills and reinforced policy frameworks).

The project is developing a methodology that will support stakeholders in defining steps and measures to be taken in order to improve adaptation to climate change using protected areas. It will build on existing experiences and best practices but will go beyond these in that it will guide stakeholders from the problem analysis (vulnerability assessment) to the practical formulation and application of adaptation measures (such as “no go zones”, restoration, enlarging protected areas etc) and the integration of such measures into local and regional planning frameworks.
