Increasing the Resilience of Tropical Hillside Communities through Forest Landscape Restoration (Livelihoods and Climate Change Information Paper 2)

By SEI, IUCN, Intercooperation, IISD on November 28, 2003
In an effort to encourage the use of ecosystem management and restoration activities in climate change adaptation strategies, IUCN, IISD, SEI-B and Intercooperation have produced a series of Information Papers to highlight successful examples of where such activities have decreased community vulnerability to climate-related hazards such as droughts and floods.

This Information Paper, second of a series, focuses on the vulnerability of tropical hillside communities around the world and uses an example from Central America to describe how local resilience to climate impacts was built through forest landscape restoration.
