Building the Capacity of Grassroots Networks to Enhance their Understanding of Climate Change Policy Processes: Lessons from Capacity Strengthening in the Least Developed Countries for Adaptation to Climate Change

The objectives of this study are twofold. On the one hand it is attempting to demonstrate the importance of capacity building in Civil Society Organisations with regard to understanding climate change policy processes. CSO’s can reach a large number of constituents to improve and increase access to information in local communities but also to influence policy-making by active citizen participation. On the other hand this publication looks at how CSO’s can complement government efforts to address climate changes at the grassroots level.
