    Summary:

    PACC Niue- Water storage systems designed to adapt to prolonged drought situations

    Improve the water infrastructure to increase the harvesting and water storage capacity of individual families and communities. It would involve capacity training and application of vulnerability and adaptation assessments using climate information on current water resource management and its impact on Niue’s economic sectors leading to a design and demonstration of an approach to climate proof the water supply systems.

Addressing climate change risks to farming systems in Turkmenistan at national and community level

  • Project details

  • Summary:

    Climate change is projected to have significant impacts on water resources in an already arid Turkmenistan. Water availability and supply are likely to suffer from increasing shortages due to elevated temperatures, overall climate aridification and competition for water arising from regional trans-boundary water issues. Turkmenistan‘s inherent aridity and reliance on agriculture as a source of both income and food renders the country particularly vulnerable to these climate change impacts.

    Project Components:
    1. Policy and Institutional Capacity Strengthening
    2. Community-based adaptation initiatives
    3. Communal systems for water delivery

    Source: Project Proposal, 2011

    Expected Outputs:
    1. Institutional capacity strengthened to develop climate resilient water policies in agriculture
    2. Resilience to climate change enhanced in targeted communities through the introduction of community-based adaptation approaches
    3. Community-managed water delivery services introduced to benefit over 30,000 farmer and pastoralist communities in the three target agro-ecological zones.

To promote the implementation of national and transboundary integrated water resource management that is sustainable and equitable given expected climate change

  • Project details

  • Implementing Agency and Partnering Organizations:
    UNDP, Department of Water Affairs, Ministry of Natural Resources and Energy, with Ministry of Tourism and Environment (Dept of Meteorology), and Ministry of Agriculture (SWADE)
    Summary:

    The Fourth Assessment report shows that the long-term trend 1900 – 2005 shows drying (longer dry seasons and more uncertain rainfall) over Southern Africa. The IPCC Third Assessment report indicates that by 2050 temperatures and rainfall over southern Africa will be 2 – 4°C higher and 10 – 20% lower than the 1961-90 baseline, respectively. Projections made in recent modelling by the University of Cape Town, South Africa (2006) coincides with this rainfall projection over most of Southern Africa.

    Project Components:
    1. Promoting informed and inclusive national dialogue around water needs, vulnerability to climate change and water allocation in Swaziland among productive and domestic uses.
    2. Integrating climate risk management into the implementation of national policies and programmes relevant to integrated water resource management.
    3. Informed negotiations on transboundary water resources management.
    Expected Outputs:
    • Information on community views on water needs and vulnerabilities with regards to climate change gathered in a coordinated manner by Ministry of Agriculture and NGOs under SWADE coordination, as national service delivery agent for designated areas.
    • Information developed and disseminated to raise awareness of communities to expected impacts of climate change and to solicit information on preferred adaptation responses.
    • Policy analysis generated on CC impacts in the water and agricultural sectors and potential response options, and implications for transboundary water management.
    • National platform/coordinating mechanism established to disseminate and discuss bottom-up and top-down analysis.
    • National policy dialogues raise awareness of the potential climate change risks reduction benefits of the draft National Water Policy to promote the adoption of the draft National Water Policy.
    • Knowledge products for policy makers developed and disseminated on potential climate change risks and response options in the water and agricultural sector.
    • Collaborative partnerships between MET Service and policy makers established to ensure updated climate information informs national policy dialogues on water management, agriculture and disaster risk management.
    • Design of guidelines, tools and instruments adjusted to take into account climate change eg on: water permit allocation (allocation to user groups and adaptive management, flood zoning), flood disaster management, building specifications for dams/water harvesting/hydro-electric structures.
    • Investments plans implemented by Ministry of Natural Resources and Energy (Water Affairs), and Ministry of Agriculture (SWADE) adjusted to take into account climate change risks.
    • Swaziland delegations to transboundary water resources management negotiations are briefed on implications of climate change on transboundary water allocation.
    • Knowledge products on climate change impacts on transboundary water resources management and water allocation disseminated.

    Objective

    The overall objective of the programme is that ‘the capacities of regional organisations in the Pacific Islands region and its member states to adapt to climate change and mitigate its causes are strengthened’.

    Main Components

    To achieve the objective, the following six components have been collaboratively developed, under which national programme activities will be aligned.

    • Component 1: Strengthening regional advisory and management capacity
    • Component 2: Mainstreaming climate considerations and adaptations strategies
    • Component 3: Implementing adaptation and mitigation measures
    • Component 4: Sustainable tourism and climate change
    • Component 5: Sustainable energy management
    • Component 6: Climate change and education

    The Vanuatu CCCPIR programme has actively been engaged in components 2, 3 and 6 since 2009, and will expand its focus to cover Components 4 & 5 in January 2012.

    Expected Outputs:

    Demonstration activities being trialled and evaluated for upscaling in the Pilot Sites include: Coastal & Hillside Erosion Control Measures through Forestry, Soil Enhancement & Composting, Innovative Farming Systems, Crop Diversity Trails for Climate Resilience, Adapted Farming System designs for CC Resilience, Livestock Breeding Trials for CC Resilience, and Integrated Agriculture & Livestock Systems
