Abstract: The Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA) program works to establish a self-sustained African body of expertise on adaptation defined by African communities, decision-makers, and institutions. This Reference Guide presents a “best bet” approach to the application of participatory action research (PAR) in addressing adaptation challenges. Diverse PAR tools and processes are portrayed in detail, including basics used throughout the PAR process (facilitation, process documentation), preparatory steps in building teams and engaging stakeholders, ways of understanding the problem or opportunity and conceptualizing change, planning, managing of change, and the role of empirical research as inputs to decision making.
