Local adaptation planning is focused on research that provides solutions to generating an enabling environment at sub-national scale for climate-smart agricultural adoption. This may be through exploration of public policy instruments and mainstreaming of adaptation in development plans, or through examination of other institutional arrangements at local sub-national scales that provide effective incentive mechanisms to ensure that climate smart agriculture be adopted by local communities. To ensure the needs of remote, vulnerable and marginalized communities are fully integrated in national climate change adaptation strategies, capacity building at community level is required to enable local governments to take part effectively in decision making. Instruments which promote marginalized groups and women are of special interest.
