Mountains ADAPT Solutions from the South Caucasus

29 Apr 2022

This booklet is one of a two-part series that includes a booklet on East Africa, and is part of the larger Adaptation at Altitude project funded by Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).

Climate change is disproportionately affecting mountain regions and their communities across the world with an amplified rate of warming compared to lower elevations and leading to rapidly changing conditions. This threatens the range of ecosystem services and goods mountains provide to agrobiodiversity, water supply, and associated poverty alleviation and sustainable development at local, regional, and international levels.

The Adaptation at Altitude programme seeks to increase the resilience and adaptive capacity of mountain communities and ecosystems to climate change, and this booklet zooms in on 9 concrete adaptation solutions in the mountains of the South Caucasus countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. It provides hands-on examples of inclusive approaches such as Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) as well as giving advice on how similar solutions can be implemented elsewhere.
