The theoretical framework of the book is developed here where the three axes are proposed for contextualizing the solutions to climate change. The axes include an ecological conditions, an axis of exposure to climate change, and an axis of adaptive capacity, each determined by local conditions. Appropriate adaptation efforts will depend on the interaction of these three axes and a site’s position along these axes can provide important information about the types of policies and actions required.

Keywords:   adaptive capacity, climate change, ecological condition, environmental stress, IPCC, Africa, Indian Ocean
