CRiSTAL is a project planning tool that helps users integrate climate adaptation into community-level development projects. CRiSTAL targets project planners and managers working at the local or community level and helps them: i) understand the livelihoods and climate context of a community or area of interest; ii) screen existing project activities to assess their impacts on livelihood resources that are important to climate adaptation, and revise these activities accordingly; iii) plan new project activities that support climate adaptation; and iv) support monitoring and evaluation. It relies on information collected from desk-based review and stakeholder consultations at the local level (community and other local experts) using participatory methods.
