The project undertook a number of key activities over a three-year period, with communities and community sector stakeholders across five regions of the Northern Periphery, to build the necessary knowledge:
- Investigation, collation and communication of relevant information on potential direct and indirect impacts of climate change to small peripheral rural communities;
- Development of adaptation strategies by these communities to avoid or reduce the negative impacts of climate change, while taking advantage of opportunities;
- Implementation of adaptation demonstration projects with a focus on trans-national activities;
- Establishment of a formal mechanism to disseminate knowledge for community adaptation.
Five work packages jointly contributed to the overall objective. Work packages 2 and 3 developed the capacity for adaptation, work package 4 evaluated the realities of delivering adaptation actions, and work package 5 brought all the lessons together and created a service, providing information, training and advice relating to community climate change adaptation.
