There is need to involve not only governments but communities as well in the development of any interventions on climate adaptation.This allows for ownership and mutual accountability and bring effectiveness of the interventions. Including comunities in the development/ formulation and implementation and monitoring and evaluation of the adaptation-related work will also ensure harmonisation and alignment of the interventions with the expectations of the communities , and thereby becoming more relevant and appropriate to the place.

This is true, but at the same time, as Golam Rabbani pointed out in the forum on different levels of engagment; even if women's concerns, suggestions or oppinion are heard, they may not be well addressed when it comes to the adoption of policies. Are there ways to monitor and ensure that women's views are actually included?
