CRiSTAL Forests helps users to: # understand the livelihoods, ecosystems and climate context of a community or area of interest; # screen existing project activities to assess their impacts on the ecosystem services that are important to climate adaptation, and revise these activities accordingly; and # plan new project activities that support climate adaptation. The list of revised or new project activities contributes directly in both the adaptation planning process and the project cycle. However, information gathered to establish the livelihoods, ecosystems and climate context in CRiSTAL Forests can also contribute to a risk assessment.
