December Newsletter
We've been very lucky this year with the high quality of our student field partners and of the projects they developed—and during November we featured select projects in four newsletters for specialty audiences. Each project has a short write-up—as well as detailed background information about the actual communities and solution oriented project activities.

 Do you have a community-based adaptation to climate change project that you would like to be featured in a new Earthscan book from Routledge?  
'A Field Guide to Community-Based Adaptation' is being written by Tim Magee for development practitioners and will include clear, step-by-step descriptions of successful project activities. We are seeking an international range of innovative and successful activities to include.
We look forward to receiving contributions from actors at all levels—and we especially welcome contributions from practitioners themselves. Please follow the link for submission instructions including an example submission.
