Monsoonal North Social Resilience Handbook


The project reviewed the most up-to-date thinking on adaptation planning and resilience. In sum, social science conducted in the region highlights that only a small proportion of landholders are prepared for climate challenges. Those that are not sufficiently prepared risk experiencing significant social and economic impacts and will accelerate soil degradation processes, compromising the future productivity of the region.
