The impacts of global climate change threaten societies, economies and ecosystems, threatening future resilience; and local communities are at the frontline dealing, facilitating and implementing climate change adaptation measures. Hence in order to accumulate and learn from resilience-building approaches in tackling the impacts of losses and damages, ICCCAD together with GRP have developed the Voices from the Frontlines series depicting stories of losses and damages as well as stories of resilience.
The objective of the project is to accumulate, learn from and disseminate loss and damage stories to build evidence base for the deeper shifts needed to build community resilience in the face of climate change.
