Seeds of Knowledge presents 24 case studies from 17 countries on grassroots solutions to the impacts of climate change.

These solutions come at a critical time. As never before, the world is in a race against time to act on climate change or else face cataclysmic natural disasters. We have already seen extreme weather events, including heat waves, droughts and flooding. While vulnerability to climate change poses risks to all communities, the impacts are likely to be tilted against many of the world's poorest regions, which have the least economic, institutional and technical ability to adapt and cope.

Seeds of Knowledge aims to show that grassroots, community-led responses are already playing an essential role in building resilience to climate change across all regions of the world. With the right levels of investment and support, such initiatives can be scaled up and become central to reducing climate risks and supporting the transition to an inclusive Green Economy.
