  1. I am very interested in this report due I am working in cross sector fields linked with rural development (climate change, adaptation, sustainable production, healthy livelihoods and strengthening communities). There is a very need to redefine and redesign local social and economic networks to adapt them to ongoing climate change, especially in Central America, where I am working.

  2. This report comes at a time just when we are set start a similar initiative in Kenya… We have a lot to learn from these best-practice work.

    It is amazing how the human mind is wired to work with and along natures possibilities and limits.
