This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
Principally based on Projects R4778J, R8475 and R7336. A new approach
pinpoints places where climate change is likely to affect fisheries
most. As well as fishers' lives, climate change will affect trade,
economies and jobs. 'Vulnerability mapping', as it is called, alerts
people to climate-change hot spots where action is urgently needed.
Communities can use this approach to help prepare for climate change.
Fishing groups in Malawi have now included migration and other ways to
adapt to climate change in their plans. Benin, Malawi, South Africa,
Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Brazil, Chile, Italy,
Finland and the UK are also using vulnerability mapping. It has great
potential for lessening the risks of climate change throughout Central
and West Africa, tropical coastal areas in South America and South East
