This volume has explored the synergies and trade-offs involved in mainstreaming climate change in development activities, focusing on natural resource management. Findings from this work underscore the need for, and the challenges faced in, taking climate change into account in development activities. This concluding chapter summarises the findings and then outlines some of the principal barriers facing the mainstreaming of climate change adaptation in development activities. The chapter concludes with an agenda for further action organised around improving the usability of climate information, developing and testing climate risk screening tools, employing appropriate entry points for climate information in development activities, focusing more on implementation, and improving co-ordination and sharing of good practices.
