They draw experience from the 'Vulnerability Assessment and Enhancing Adaptive Capacities to Climate Change' (V&A) pilot programme, implemented 2005-2009 with support from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.

A broad range of measures have been piloted to help poor communities reduce climate vulnerability of their water and land resources, and their agriculture and livestock-based livelihoods. Opportunities are identified for up-scaling these measures, including through integration into policies, plans and programmes at various levels. The case studies cover five priority areas of interventions: water resources management, pasture land development, rice cultivation, community-based institutions, and village-level agro-meteorological observatories.
