Building Capacity of the Local Communities to Reduce and Eliminate the Risks of Climate Change

Timeframe :

30 Months

Donors / Sponsors :

Global Environment Facility (GEF) – UNDP

Geographical Coverage :

National Level –Pakistan

Objectives :

Building and strengthening capacity of the local communities to reduce and eliminate the risks of climate change by developing cost-effective adaptation and mitigation strategies while strengthening the sustainable development.

Project Components :

  • Building climate change adaptive capacity of the local communities, stakeholders and government departments for reducing and eliminating the risks of climate change.
  • Institutional strengthening and review of national infrastructure including industries and rural risks management system.
  • Integrated adaptation models implemented in vulnerable areas and consolidate existing national sustainable transport policies and sustainable development.
  • Legal aspects and policy framework for the risks of climate change at the national level and forestation on sensitive places as well as inventory of GHG emissions.
  • Gender-based mass awareness campaigns through organizing workshops, seminars, stakeholders’ meetings and interviews and information dissemination.
  • Monitoring and evaluation
  •  Project management

Expected Outcomes :

  • Enhanced knowledge on climate management plan, capacity building of the relevant stakeholders and effective use of alternative technologies for reducing and eliminating the risks of climate change.
  • Climate change management strategies, updated national chemicals management profile and recommendations for regulatory framework and better practices for reducing and eliminating the risks of climate change with scientific methods available.
  • Climate resilience of agricultural production systems and the most vulnerable agro-pastoral communities strengthened and promoted best use of alternative technologies.
  • Improved application of policy, legal and financial instruments in the government systems / framework for reducing and eliminating the risks of climate change at the national level with scientific analysis.
  • Enhanced awareness among the stakeholders and concerned government departments for reducing, managing and eliminating risks and best practices generated.
  • Streamlining project activities and performance review for enhanced impact.

Expected Outputs :

  • 8,000 people and 25 concerned institutes trained in reduction and elimination of the risks of climate change.
  • Improved governance framework for controlling and eliminating the risks of climate change in 5 major ecological zones at national level and reduction in GHG emission.
  • Agro-meteorological assistance systems strengthened, appropriate agro-pastoral farming systems, climate-resilient alternative livelihoods strategies adopted by targeted populations.
  • Strengthened legal policy and administrative framework of climate change management and climate inventory strengthened in all the provinces and decreased the rate of temperature.
  • Gender based mass awareness on climate change raised among 1,000 local leader as a network at local government level for pollution-free environment and improved media mechanism.
  • Project impact would be visible at the national level with elimination of the risks of climate change by 10%.
