Estudio de caso Uruguay – Integración de la Agricultura en los Planes Nacionales de Adaptación (PNA)

Uruguay ha elaborado un conjunto avanzado de políticas, estrategias y planes sobre el cambio climático. El país se ha comprometido a alcanzar metas sectoriales de mitigación ambiciosas y cuantificadas para 2030.

RESILIENT: Zero Carbon, Risk-Informed, Sustainable

This report, chronicling efforts at the country level since 2015, looks specifically at the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Paris Agreement, and the Sustainable Development Goals of Agenda 2030.

Case study: 'Women’s Empowerment at the Frontline of Adaptation: Emerging issues, adaptive practices, and priorities in Nepal'

Case study: 'Women’s Empowerment at the Frontline of Adaptation: Emerging issues, adaptive practices, and priorities in Nepal'. Shared at Asia Pacific Training Programme: Mainstreaming Gender Considerations in Climate Change Adaptation Projects, December 2017, Bangkok.

Kenya Case Study

This country case study on Kenya is one in a series that describes the steps taken to formulate and implement National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), with a particular emphasis on adaptation in agriculture (incl. forestry, livestock and fisheries). This series aims to provide national policy makers with valuable information from colleagues and counterparts in Asia, Africa and Latin America who are on the same NAP journey to address the multiple challenges posed by climate change. Each case study describes the contribution and lessons learnt from the UNDP–FAO programme Integrating Agriculture in NAPs (NAP–Ag), which is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) through the International Climate Initiative (IKI).

Uruguay Case Study - NAP-Ag Programme

This country case study on Uruguay is one in a series that describes the steps taken to formulate and implement National Adaptation Plans (NAPs). The case studies focus on adaptation in agriculture, which includes forestry, livestock and fisheries. The series aims to provide national policy makers with valuable information from counterparts in Asia, Africa and Latin America who are on the same NAP journey to tackle the multiple challenges posed by climate change. Each case study further describes the contribution and lessons learnt from the UNDP – FAO programme Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP–Ag), which is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU)

Non-Timber Forest Products and their Role in Ecosystem and Community Resilience

The Ecosystem based Adaptation (EbA) project is geared towards combating the impacts of climate change. Operating in 17 Village Districts Committees of Kaski, Parbat and Syangja District that include 9 core VDCs of the Panchase Protection Forest (PPF) and 8 adjoining VDCs, the EbA programme selected the area due to its vulnerability to climate change impacts. The major climate change hazards as landslides and soil erosion are predicted in the Panchase region with erratic rainfall pattern as resulted by changing climatic condition.

Grey Green Structures as a Treatment to Climate Induced Disasters

Nepal as a mountainous country is highly vulnerable to the impact of climate change and specially, erratic rainfall patterns are observed in Nepal. Such scenario rainfall patterns along with degraded ecosystems will result in climate changed induced disasters i.e. flash floods, landslides, slope failures and erosion. Such disaster can result destruction of rural infrastructures i.e. roads, loss of property and even human lives. The EbA Project has prioritized grey green or bio-engineer structures i.e.
