dc.description.abstract This map book chapter presents a series of maps with accompanying text for Lake Chiuta using data obtained in the Environmental Threats and Opportunity Assessment (ETOA), the Photographic Survey and the Participatory Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment (PVCA). There are separate sections that include maps depicting aquatic habitat, fish species richness, and the locations of breeding, nursery, juvenile, and adult habitats for the most common fish species. The map book also shows the fishing ground locations for the most common species one, five, and ten years ago, as well as trend lines of catch over time when data were available from the Frame Surveys. Additional maps depicting the location and density of various fishing gear types were created using the georeferenced data gathered during the photographic survey. Each chapter concludes with maps depicting the lake shore area(s) most vulnerable to climate change and maps of each exposure, sensitivity, and adaptive capacity indicator used in the climate change vulnerability assessment. It is hoped that the atlas will serve as a valuable tool for guiding the development of District Development Plans and provide fisheries extension officers and lakeside communities with access to materials that can help inform decision making. en_US
