This report describes the outcomes of a community adaptive capacity assessment carried out in three Fijian village communities between March and May 2011. The assessment was conducted by four assessors from the University of the South Pacific (USP) between March and April 2011. The assessment of the sites was based on an adaptive capacity framework designed specifically for Pacific island communities by representatives of the USP, the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) and the Australian Red Cross Pacific Disaster Management Program in February, 2011. The Fijian village communities that were involved in this community adaptive capacity assessment were three of the six pilot sites of the Fiji Climate Change Adaptation Project funded by Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID). Three of the assessors were involved at various levels of the Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) Project implementation process and therefore had prior knowledge and working relations with the communities.
