Natural resource management
The project will increase the resilience of poor people to cope with, and adapt to, the impacts of climate change. This will be achieved through strengthening the capacity of vulnerable communities in four South Asian countries to prepare for and adapt to changing and extreme weather conditions.
Key outcomes of the project:
- Community-based disaster preparedness plans in four countries
- Sustainable technologies for natural resource management, water conservation and agriculture implemented
- Capacity of support institutions, local and regional stakeholders strengthened to incorporate community-based climate change mitigation strategies into development planning and natural resources management strategies
- Changes effected in policy and practice at local, regional and international levels to support community-based climate change adaptation measures
