Charting Adaptation

The Platform for Agrobiodiversity Research (PAR) is collecting and synthesising information about climate adaptation strategies based on the use of agrobiodiversity and indigenous knowledge. The responses from indigenous and rural communities to change are being charted and represented on an interactive map. Through the map you can access the individual stories and the source of the information.

The cases on the map present a wide range of climate adaptation measures and coping strategies of rural and indigenous communities including landscape restoration, changes in cropping systems, cultivation of stress-tolerant crops, organic agriculture, changes in livestock and fisheries management, indigenous beekeeping, biodiversity management, diet diversification, and soil and water management. Often, these strategies are the elements of integrated and site-specific approaches based on the indigenous and local knowledge and innovation.
