Enhancing climate resilience and food & nutrition security
Climate-related shocks and stresses – the ‘manifestations’ of climate variability and change – represent significant obstacles to achieving food and nutrition security in many poor communities and countries. While building climate resilience is now recognized as an important strategic priority and the need for action in this regard has been clearly recognised, there is still much debate about how to do in practice.
The objective of this technical guide offers a set of concrete actions and practical orientations to enhance climate resilience and food and nutrition security. These actions should be conducted in priority in communities and countries highly exposed to climate-related shocks and seasonal trends. This guide is designed to complement others tools developed by Action Against Hunger, including the Disaster Risk Management tools.
