Designing adaptation strategies is crucial to enable communities adapt to climate change impacts. Under its component titled “Elaboration of Adaptation Strategies”, the CHIESA Project aimed to build the capacities of local communities and institutions in the Jimma area to identify existing climate-induced problems and vulnerabilities, two plan responses and implementation
strategies to enhance their resilience and help them adapt to the current and projected impacts of climate variability and change in the area. To contribute to this aim, the project facilitated the development of a Community-Based Climate Change Adaptation Action Plan by engaging local stakeholders in identifying priority adaptation options to be implemented in the area (Box 1).
