How can a digital decision support platform overcome barriers to widespread adoption of/ mainstreaming of CbA in LMIC?


I am looking to discuss my ongoing PhD research on Community-based adaptation/ local level adaptation in LMICwith CbA/LLA practitioners, as part of the key informants’ interview.

I am Subhashree, a Doctoral fellow ( at the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Regional and Urban Development ( ), Dresden, Germany. My doctoral thesis focuses on community-based climate change adaptation, especially in under-resourced communities in low-middle-income countries. Results from the systematic scoping review of existing literature conducted in the first part of the PhD research highlight some of the key barriers to community participation and successful implementation of CbA projects: power imbalance within communities, lack of reliable &/long-term financing, lack of relevant and accessible information availability, and unresponsive/ ineffective/ biased governance.

At the current stage, I am starting to conduct key-informants interviews: with practitioners, and researchers who have been working with the community to develop their resilience to various disturbances, including climate change. The discussions will help me test my hypothesis regarding different barriers to community-centric development and adaptation activities and the role of a digital decision-support system in overcoming these.

I understand everyone has a lot on their plates, especially when addressing such a pressing issue, but I hope you would be able to take out some time. This would help me start my journey as a CbA/LLA practitioner. The interview is designed for not more than 45min, but a longer discussion is always welcome.

I hope to hear from you!
