dc.description.abstract Findings showed that poorer households often have adaptive capacity that is reactive, need-based and short-term. Ecotourism is an important livelihood strategy for some communities in protected areas living in marginal situations defined by changing climate. Such communities typically employ diverse and wider livelihood strategies to reduce risk and survive. This thesis study examined local perceptions and lived experience in a sustainable ecotourism development as a case study site in Ghana. Integrating knowledge of the lived experience helps inform participatory planned adaptation strategies to reduce vulnerability to future climate change. en
