Communities share personal stories of change Print E-mail

In 2011-2012, CARE worked with local journalists and women, elder men and young men in Kenya, Niger, Ghana and Mozambique (through the ALP: Adaptation Learning Programme in Africa) to share their stories about how climate change impacts them, and how they are coping. These digital photo stories are being used for community awareness-raising about climate change impacts; to understand and monitor change through the ALP programme over time; and for advocacy. They are integral to CARE's process of working with communities in setting priorities, and developing and monitoring adaptation strategies.  Read more about the Kenya training.
