About this document

The aim of this document is to provide workshop participants with basic insights into the selected case studies. It has been prepared by the WFP Office for Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction with WFP and partner staff in country offices.

Overview of the selected case studies

Ten case studies were identified from various parts of the world representing a selection of examples of activities that have combined climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction with food security. These case studies and this summary are designed to support the identification of good practice, lessons, gaps, and opportunities in building resilience. The case studies are geographically diverse and cover Latin America, Africa, and Asia. The table and the map below provide an overview.

Each case study provides an overview of the project and rationale, the main features of the project, a set of challenges faced, and the relevance of the project to resilience building.
