The Sun is Falling”: Evidence of how Local Practices are Mitigating and Adapting to Climate Change, and what more can be done – Lessons Learnt from Community Voices through the ‘Local Leadership for Global Impact’ project

By: GNDR - Global Network of Civil Society Organisations for Disaster Reduction | March 2024 | Reports and Policy Briefs
