  • Keywords. These can include where the work was done (location), the area of work (ecosystem-based adaptation, resilience building), relevant subjects (water security), adaptation options and the tools & methods used. 
  • Main Theme/Network. This is the Theme or Network in which you want your case study, article or Project Description to sit.
