Climate change has direct impacts on ecosystems and biodiversity but may also indirectly impact nature through human adaptation responses. A major oversight of most assessments of climate change impacts to date has been the inadequate consideration of the indirect impacts due to human responses to climate change. ABCG has conducted over 650 surveys in 19 communities throughout sub-Saharan Africa and found more than a third of the climate change coping strategies could potentially have a negative impact on biodiversity. Data and information gathered is used to identify and implement ecosystem-based adaptation interventions that help farming, livestock and fishing communities adapt to climate change, improving their overall wellbeing and the biodiversity around them.
