Participatory climate risk assessment (PCRA)

The Rapid Climate Risk Assessment is a tool that is designed to monitor climate change impacts systematically. The Southern African Development Community (SADC) Participatory Rapid Climate Risk Assessment (PRCA), developed in 2020 with support from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), identified climate risk hotspots in the Malawi-Zambia (MaZA) Transfrontier Conservation Area (TFCA). The methodology combined a desk study, community assessments and virtual sessions with representatives of the MaZa TFCA management and with local authorities and grasps local knowledge, perceptions and contexts. In 2022, FAKT put the tool into action to inform the development of adaptation and mitigations plans for the region. You can learn more about the methodology from the project factsheet.
