From Analysis to Action: Key Steps in Local Adaptation Planning

This guide provides a practical case study of what this sequencing looked like throughout CARE’s Locally-led Adaptation Pilot (LLAP) in Southern Zambia and provides insights on how practitioners can design adaptation planning processes from analysis to action. It also also thereby offers insight as to types of investments needed from donors and governments.

Sequencing for Success: The Essentials of Locally-led Adaptation

Between early 2022 – and early 2024, CARE conducted a Locally-led Adaptation Pilot (LLAP) in Southern Zambia, to implement the full cycle of adaptation planning from analysis to action with communities facing greater climate vulnerability due to increasing droughts, floods, and erratic rainfall patterns. This Brief describes this sequencing throughout the pilot, and provides key messages for how donors, policymakers, and adaptation practitioners can better design and support effective and equitable adaptation. 

Interim Reparative Measures (IRM) Project

The Interim Reparative Measures (IRM) Project, funded by the Global Survivors Fund and jointly implemented by Nadia’s Initiative and Mission East, centres on providing access to both individual and collective interim reparative measures. These projects are co-created with survivors, who exercise full autonomy in shaping the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation processes.

Woman’s Sustainable Farming project

The Woman’s Sustainable Farming project rebuilds farming households by empowering women to restart cultivating their land. Nadia’s Initiative has designed, developed, and implemented the project. The project’s broader effect is its revitalising nature to the Sinjar agricultural industry. The project’s broader effect is its revitalising nature to the Sinjar agricultural industry. This is done through the reclaiming of land, which allows farmers to build a foundation for the local economy to reverse some effects from the genocide committed against the Yazidis.

Kachin Peace Program

The Kachin Peace Program concentrates on conflict-impacted and hard-to-reach areas in the north of Burma/Myanmar. The program engages in research, design, and execution of peacebuilding actions. It employs systemic action research that first gathers data in the form of life stories from conflict-affected individuals. It then utilises systems mapping, whereby local participants analyse these narratives to identify appropriate peacebuilding, human rights, developmental, and humanitarian measures. These initiatives are then implemented using an action research approach, with intentional networking strategies to scale up and sustain impacts over time. Adapt Peacebuilding, a non-profit organisation, implements this project.


The Co-inspira program in Colombia focuses on public participation in building peace in conflict-affected territories. It unites local communities, government actors, and social leaders to work together to develop and implement peacebuilding initiatives tailored to the area’s needs. The program is focused on collaborative efforts for sustainable peacebuilding initiatives in Cauca.

Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis within the STRENPO Programme

The Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis (CVCA) is an approach developed by CARE to assess community-level vulnerabilities and capacities to climate change. It draws on climate information from both scientific and traditional knowledge sources. Through collecting and analysing this data, CVCA catalyses the identification of necessary actions at the community level to enhance resilience in the face of climate change. 

Sharm-el-Sheikh Adaptation Agenda Implementation Report

The Sharm El-Sheikh Adaptation Agenda (SAA) offers near-term solutions for resilience, addressing global challenges, with transformative opportunities highlighted in this implementation report.

Did the Global COVID-19 Recovery Address Climate Adaptation and Resilience?

This paper aims to determine to what extent countries incorporated climate adaptation and resilience into their COVID-19 recovery measures during the first two years of the pandemic.

Roof Over Our Heads (ROOH) – One year progess

This report outlines the first year of the ‘Roof Over Our Heads’ (ROOH) campaign, launched at COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. ROOH focuses on climate-resilient housing solutions for informal settlements in Global South cities. Emphasising community empowerment, incremental upgradation, and collaboration with stakeholders, the campaign aims to improve living conditions for most impacted populations worldwide.
