Abstract: Research on the use of ICT for improving the adaptive capacity of communities is scarce, but important indications for how it might be successfully applied are starting to be seen. The Climate Change Adaptation and ICT (CHAI) project will assess the extent to which a range of selected communities can adapt to water-related impacts of climate change, and how these adaptive capacities can be strengthened through the use of ICT tools such as text messaging, Interactive Voice Response system (IVR), radio, and community loudspeakers. Information campaigns using diverse means of communication will provide opportunities to assess their relative efficacy.
