This complexity also provides a basis for cohesion and collective ethos. At a symbolic level, communities will have clear demarcation of territorial boundaries, names and other forms in which they develop identity. A cohesive community will be able to identify leaders, identify goals of collective interest, and steer these processes to achieve targets rather than those that may be fractioned and in conflict. Communities that have different organizations addressing the needs of its members strengthen the people’s sense of community and will be able to address the needs of the members more effectively.

The climate change effects can then be better addressed with meaningful strategies specific to every locality, rather than blanket policies or programmes. The programmes and strategies must recognize this variability in terms of quality of governance system and extent of local participation. The conceptual ideal is where the principle of subsidiarity is applied fully under good governance.

Communities that have different organizations addressing the needs of its members strengthen the people’s sense of community and will be able to address the needs of the members more effectively.
