Announcement Learning for Resilience: insights from Cambodia's rural communities
This publication emerged from four years of sustained research by partners in the Food Security, Climate Change and Natural Resources Management in Cambodia research program. In implementing this major program, the Learning Insti tute received financial support from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada and acted as a grant-making organization for partners.

This book summarizes lessons learned from rural communities about ways they have tried to build resilience in the face of changes that have affected their social-ecological systems. The research program consists of a diversity of projects spanning the country and focusing on a wide variety of themes and issues. Each project addresses specific dimensions of the nexus of 'climate change-food security-natural resources management' but they are integrated under one common research framework.

It was primarily witten by Khmer teams of researchers and was edited by Dr. Jean Christophe-Diepart and Ronald W. Jones for the Learning Institute in Phnom Penh.
