dc.description.abstract Climate change is causing perturbation to ecosystems worldwide and ongoing damages to communities necessitating the need to adapt by building resilience and reducing the vulnerabilities of people and infrastructure. Accordingly, policy-makers must sufficiently understand the effects of climate change and the communities' resilience capacities to it. This can be achieved by an efficient science-policy interface with respect to climate change adaptation planning. This type of interface would better position both scientists and decision-makers to more effectively address the priorities of communities impacted by climate change.
