Multisector Projects

Given the wide reaching impacts of climate change, the most apt solutions will often work across development sectors. In this area the goal is to find synergies, such as those between agriculture and water management, that will enable projects to target the vulnerabilities that cross traditional boundaries with holistic solutions that do the same.

Practical Solutions for Reducing Community Vulnerability to Climate Change in the Federated States of Micronesia

Micronesia, Federated States of - Asia-Pacific

Located in the Western Pacific, the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) is comprised of four states: Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei, and Kosrae. Its population of over 100,000 people is largely dependent on ecosystem services (e.g. nearshore fisheries, coastal protection) for their livelihoods, both for subsistence and as sources of incomes. More than 80% of communities in

“Akamatutu’anga kia Tukatau te Ora’anga ite Pa Enua” Pa Enua Action for Resilient Livelihoods (PEARL)

Cook Islands - Asia-Pacific

The Cook Islands experiences a range of natural hazards, including tropical cyclones, tsunami, floods and droughts. It is increasingly vulnerable to slow and fast-onset events resulting from natural, man-made and climate related hazards such as coastal erosion from sea level rise, ocean acidification, tropical cyclones and drought. In addition, the existing socio-economic, infrastructure and environmental

An integrated approach to physical adaptation and community resilience in Antigua and Barbuda’s northwest McKinnon’s watershed

Antigua and Barbuda - Latin America and Caribbean

Antigua and Barbuda is a twin-island state located in the eastern region of the Caribbean Sea. This project will focus its efforts on a high risk and populated watershed on the northwest coast of Antigua. The project area is vulnerable to climate change, undergoing urban expansion, and supports low income and lower middle-income families. The project

Increasing the resilience of poor and vulnerable communities to climate change

Jordan - Asia-Pacific

The main goal of the proposed expansion of the waste water reuse project at Wadi Mousa is to maximize the reuse of waste water treatment plant effluent as a community adaptation method to climate change where the reuse of reclaimed water can be demonstrated to be a productive, economical, reliable, environmentally safe for sustainable irrigated agriculture that can

Taking adaptation to the ground: A small Grants Facility for enabling local-level responses to climate change

South Africa - Sub-Saharan Africa

Climate change projections have indicated that both the Mopani District, in Limpopo in the north east of South Africa, and the Namakwa District, in the Northern Cape in the north west of South Africa, will be subject to increasing temperatures and changing rainfall patterns. According to local scale analysis of historical trends and future projections,

Integrated Programme To Build Resilience To Climate Change & Adaptive Capacity Of Vulnerable Communities In Kenya

Kenya - Sub-Saharan Africa

Kenya comprises 83% of arid and semi-arid land and has an economy and livelihoods that are heavily reliable on rain-fed agriculture, which is in turn vulnerable to extreme droughts exacerbated by climate change and variability. This programme seeks to enhance resilience and adaptive capacity to climate change for selected communities in various Counties in Kenya

Reducing the Vulnerability by Focusing on Critical Sectors (Agriculture, Water Resources and Coastlines) in order to Reduce the Negative Impacts of Climate Change and Improve the Resilience of these Sectors.

Costa Rica - Latin America and Caribbean

Costa Rica is experiencing the effects of increasing temperatures and intensity of extreme rainfall. These effects, due to climate change, are increasing the vulnerability of the water resources of the country, threatening the sustainable production of agricultural resources that promote food security and livelihoods, as well as negatively affecting mangroves and coral reefs, which serve
