    As I was one of the participants I wish to give some coments. After completion of the training, I came to following issues:
    1. The impacts due to climate change (flood, drought etc.) mentioned in the training have various other associated components which are still to discover and it is not well identified the exact percentage of impacts contributed by climate change.
    2. Climate change adaptation project is very close to development project and it will be difficult to separate and illustrate the linkage and differences in between.
    3. People are experiencing disaster from many hundreds of years now the challenge is to convince the local community that the disasters they are experiencing now are due to change in climate.
    Though there are few challenges and issues, I truly think that the climate change is really happening and we as a LDCs need to move ahead with adaptation activities targeting those who are at risk of disaster. Few things in my opinion to initiate action against climate change are:
    1. Build wider networks and linkage among development workers and environmentalists.
    2. Create awareness to local people on adverse effects of climate change and its simple mitigation measures.
    3. Initiate intensive and scientific researches and studies to explore the climate change impacts and its severity.
    4. Identify climate vulnerability context hotspots and develop & implement context specific adaptation projects.
