Local investments for climate change adaptation: Green jobs through green works

A guide for identifying, designing and implementing interventions in support of climate change adaptation at the local level.

The guide describes the approach in the context of climate change adaptation and identifies the benefits for poor communities. It links climate change adaptation with poverty reduction and employment creation. The guide contains three general sections on the context and the approach and five technical sections that identify possible climate change adaptation works in five subsectors: irrigation, soil and water conservation, flood control, rural transport and forestry. It elaborates on the local resource-based approach and demonstrates how green jobs can be created through green works.
