Signature Programme #2

Advancing Cross-sectoral Climate Resilient Livelihoods

The UNDP is scaling up climate resilient livelihoods and risk management. This includes advancing Climate Resilient Livelihoods, supports countries to advance sustainable economic development in rural areas in the face of climate change. Assistance is also provided to strengthen climate information and early warning systems for climate resilient development in developing countries.

Climate Resilient Technologies

Adaptation will require more resilient infrastructure, more climate-resilient technologies, and new agricultural practices to counter the increased climate risks. Improving access to energy in underserved areas and using low-emission technologies can address the development needs of vulnerable populations while promoting a transition to green, low-emission and climate resilient development.

Strengthening Climate Information and Early Warning Systems for Climate Resilient Development

This Signature Programme, Strengthening Climate Information and Early Warning Systems for Climate Resilient Development and adaptation to climate change, is supporting the development of Early Warning Systems (EWS) across Africa, Asia and the Pacific in order to help them respond to both short-term/rapid onset climatic hazards (e.g. cyclones, floods and storms), as well as long-term/slow onset hazards (e.g. drought and long-term climate change).
