Least developed countries (LDCs) can request financial assistance for adaptation through the UNFCCC's National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPAs) . Based on analysis of NAPA processes in Malawi and Niger, CARE puts forth recommendations for how future financial arrangements for adaptation can better support inclusive, transparent national adaptation planning in LDCs, which recognizes differences in human vulnerability and prioritizes the needs of most vulnerable populations.

Africa Climate Change Resilience Alliance (ACCRA) - Local Adaptive Capacity framework
The LAC Framework was developed to guide the network’s research as a key overarching conceptual tool for the programme. It is an attempt to incorporate the intangible and dynamic dimensions of adaptive capacity, as well as capital and resource-based components, into an analysis of adaptive capacity at local level.

CARE Australia / Timor Leste - 2011
Livelihood security in a changing climate: Insights from a programme evaluation in Timor Leste (2011)
This report draws on the findings of a recent CARE Australia evaluation focusing on the effectiveness, impact and sustainability of CARE programming in Timor Leste in relation to climate hazards. It sought to evaluate the effectiveness and sustainability of selected projects in relation to household adaptive capacity and reduced vulnerability to climate hazards. Drawing on the work of the evaluation, this report looks to distil key conclusions and recommendations which will be of particular relevance for livelihoods programming, in Timor Leste and beyond.
Global Advocacy - 2009
It is imperative that the international agreement and framework for adaptation assistance to developing countries ensures that communities, populations and people most at risk and least equipped to manage the consequences receive the restitution they are due, either in the form of direct adaptation support or broader infrastructure, service and policy reforms that facilitate local adaptation efforts. This discussion paper - commissioned by CARE International, Germanwatch and Bread for the World - sets forth concrete, workable suggestions for pro-poor governance of international adaptation funding.
CARE Ethiopia - 2009
Climate‐related vulnerability and adaptive‐capacity in Ethiopia's Borana and Somali communities. Save the Children UK and CARE Ethiopia. The purpose of this research is to undertake a comparative analysis of the climate-related vulnerability and adaptive capacity of Borana and Somali pastoralist communities in Ethiopia, how they have changed over time, and how they relate to climate change. The results of this analysis are intended to provide the Government of Ethiopia, civil society organizations, and international donors a basis for improved development programming and advocacy.
CARE Brasil 2009
This report documents the results and impact of our work in the coast of Bahia. Since 2002, CARE Brasil has been contributing to processes of change in the Costa do Cacau (Cocoa Coast) region, Bahia's south coast. With a regional office in the town of Ilhéus, our teamhas been assisting some of the more vulnerable groups from this region which has undergone many periods of wealth production. Such wealth has remained in the hands of a few powerful families and led to the social exclusion of most of its population. Throughout the years CARE Brasil has introduced and tested several social technologies in order to empower families and communities under this programme. This work, focused on improving the cocoa value chain, has been developed along with several social, public and private organizations.
CARE Nepal 2009
Climate Change Impacts on Livelihoods of Poor and Vulnerable Communities and Biodiversity Conservation: A Case Study in Banke, Bardia, Dhading and Rasuwa Districts of Nepal. SAGUN Program, CARE Nepal and Li-Bird. This study shows that the climate is changing in the study areas, like elsewhere in the world. The impact of climate change on biodiversity and livelihoods of communities in the study areas is very distinct and it has indicated that poor, marginalized women and Dalit were more vulnerable to climate change impacts. Meanwhile, coping strategies and adaptation mechanism applied by these local communities are not very effective to address climate change issues and threats.
CARE Mozambique - 2008

World Wildlife Fund and CARE Mozambique. The report is based on a Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis (CVCA) made for CARE’s and WWF’s newly established program on sustainable livelihoods in Angoche and Moma districts in Mozambique.
