Building Community Resilience to Climate Change: Testing the Adaptation Coalition Framework in Latin America

This paper presents the Adaptation Coalition Framework (ACF), the goal of which is to address challenges presented by climate change that many other current climate adaptation models and sustainable development frameworks do not completely address. It indicates four perspectives that need to be integrated to effectively manage disaster risk and build social resilience to climate change. It also presents the findings from a five-country case study which tested the application of the ACF in Argentina, Bolivia, Dominican Republic, Paraguay, and Peru
