The Science-Policy adaptive capacity for local herding and government groups to reduce climate vulnerability

The countries facing many challenges to adapt with climate change. Pastoral vulnerability assessment is base to measure how climate change affect the pasture, livestock, livelihoods of the herding community. Our past study “Ecological vulnerability assessment for adaptation strategy formulation at different spatial scales in western Mongolia and China” (CRRP2017-04MY-BALT) under APN was addressed it. The rural herding communities, young leaders, and local government units, lie in lack of scientific information to better understand Climate-Pasture-Livelihood’s nexus and how it might impact their well-being now and into the future, as well as limited capacity building resources in between science, policies, and its implementation. The science-policy adaptive capacity program (SiPaC) aims to enhance the local herding communities, young leaders/researchers, practitioners, and government units to participate in and connect with local, national, and regional scientific contributions and policy agenda (SDG’s) on climate change adaptation, and to learn the science-based pastoral managements, best practices, and innovative solutions. It is expected that capacity program will serve a platform to facilitate the targeted stakeholders’ knowledge, management, skills, networking, partnership as well as local adaptation strategy through Scientific contributions, structured learning tools, methodologies, training manuals or guidelines, practical and interactive sessions in local needs.
