CARE Climate vulnerability and capacity analysis (CVCA) handbook

The CVCA methodology is based on a framework of “enabling factors” for Community-Based Adaptation (CBA). It is designed to feed into and strengthen planning processes by providing vital, context-specific information about the impacts of climate change and local vulnerability.

This handbook provides an overview of the methodology, as well as practical guidance for using it in the design and implementation of adaptation actions.

This study is motivated by the idea that even though participatory monitoring and evaluation (PM&E) is widely accepted as a tool to manage development programs to be effective, its application is widely constrained by its high start-up resource requirements in terms of both finance and time. However, this paper argues that after the initial investment is made, the payback from using PM&E is much higher both in terms of grassroots-level learning, empowerment, and capacity building and in terms of higher-level strategic decision making which enhances impact.
