A Framework for Indigenous Community-Based Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment in the Garo Hills, North-East India

A Framework for Indigenous Community-Based Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment in the Garo Hills, North-East India

The framework is part of the efforts to address vulnerability and adaptation to climate change. It is useful to eradicate poverty, fill productive employment and enhance social integration. Climate change will have the largest impact on areas that have high population density, significant historical exposure to climate related hazards, high household’s vulnerability, poor governance, and low resilience to stress on natural resources. Indigenous community based climate vulnerability and capacity assessment (CBVCA) in the Garo hills has implications for livelihoods, food systems, ecological stress and perceive culture. This study characterizes CBVCA in the Garo hills of northeast India to climate change in the context of ongoing socio-economic and environmental challenges.
