The effects of the local building culture approach on the local adaptive capacity to climate change: the case of the implemented project in Haiti

Abstract : Climate change is a certain truth. Adapting to climate change becomes a necessity. The 2015 Paris agreement on climate change sets the global adaptation goal, with the aim to increase adaptive capacity to climate change. Many development approaches are not designed as adaptation interventions, but they have an impact on adaptive capacity. The aim of this thesis is to evaluate the impact of the Local Building Culture (LBC) approach on the local adaptive capacity. The evaluation is based on the implemented project in Haiti, and it follows a descriptive framework. Evaluating this impact brings new understandings on the LBC approach in the context of climate change adaptation. It is expected that the LBC approach positively affects the local adaptive capacity, since it is based on a local know-­‐how and expertise, actively involving local stakeholders in the development process. On a broad scale research illustrates a model of evaluating an impact of development approaches on adaptive capacity, which brings potential for its characterization and adjustments of development interventions in the context of climate change.
