Indigent communities that rely on ecosystem goods and services are most vulnerable to changing weather patterns as a consequence of climate change. Social cohesion is critical in order for communities to be able to respond to the impacts of climate change in a coherent and integrated manner. There is a need for local champions to drive specific solutions to the challenges being faced.

The CAP project had three sub-projects:

1) A social vulnerability and adaptation planning study, conducted in the above three areas, aimed at understanding how climate change impacts exacerbate daily challenges and risks faced by vulnerable communities.

2) An assessment of climate change impacts upon maize, including an investigation into the productivity of alternativestaple crops under climate change conditions, and their social acceptability.

3) Research into water harvesting options and the undertaking of a local level project focusing on water harvesting, water-wise landscaping and the improvement of a community garden were initiated at a school in Luganda.
