dc.description.abstract Governance shapes the opportunities for adaptation in practice, facilitating communication and coordination between local and national-level action. Reversing climate change is essentially about empowering vulnerable communities. This chapter unpacks the concept of adaptation and vulnerability, making a link to governance as the hook that enables adaptation. Climate change in developing countries is made more difficult by weak institutions and governance. These two fundamental ingredients are necessary for transition to a transformative development that will make adaptation more sustainable. en
