SUSTAINABLE LAND MANAGEMENT AND BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION FOR COMMUNITY-BASED ADAPTATION: A Comparative Study of the UNDP-GEF Community-Based Adaptation Portfolio in Samoa

Samoa is a Small Island Developing Country located in the Southwest Pacific. The climate is tropical with uniform temperatures
ranging between 24°C-32°C, and average precipitation of about 3,000mm. As other Pacific Island countries, Samoa during the
20th Century has experienced an increase in average temperatures—a mean increase of 0.59°C—and a decrease in precipitation
by 49.28mm. Climate change projections from the First National Communication (FNC 1999) and the United Nations Framework

SUSTAINABLE LAND MANAGEMENT AND BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION FOR COMMUNITY-BASED ADAPTATION: A Comparative Study of the UNDP-GEF Community-Based Adaptation Portfolio in Jamaica

The UNDP-GEF Community-Based Adaptation (CBA) Programme in Jamaica works to address some of these challenges through the implementation of six demonstration projects geared towards capacity building and improved natural resources management to reduce the vulnerability of the community and their ecosystems to climate change variability and extremes, and to generate global environmental benefits.

SUSTAINABLE LAND MANAGEMENT AND BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION FOR COMMUNITY-BASED ADAPTATION: A Comparative Study of the UNDP-GEF Community-Based Adaptation Portfolio in Kazakhstan

The UNDP-GEF Community-Based Adaptation (CBA) Programme supports the implementation of CBA projects, which aim to enhance the adaptive capacity and reduce the vulnerability of poor communities to climate change in ten pilot countries, including Kazakhstan.

Adapting Locally to Secure Sustainable Futures: Selected Case Studies from the UNDP GEF Community-Based Adaptation Project

This report illustrates examples of community transformations that can take place as a result of community efforts to sustainably adapt to climate change impacts. It also highlights the socio-economic and community mobilization benefits that can be achieved through community-based adaptation. These positive results are demonstrated through the adaptation measures implemented by the CBA pilot projects, which were aided by increased awareness, knowledge and capacities in 7 of the 10 participating countries of the SPA CBA project.

UNDP-ALM Rwanda Study - December 2012

ABSTRACT: In 2007 heavy flooding and subsequent landslides in Western Rwanda took the lives of dozens of people in the Nyabihu District. The extreme weather caused extensive damage to houses and property, displacing thousands. For rural Rwandans, with the vast majority of the population engaged in agriculture, irregularity and unpredictability of rainfall has serious consequences (especially in the Western and Eastern provinces).

UNDP-ALM Eritrea Case Study (November 2012)

ABSTRACT: Low agricultural productivity and land degradation have become major features of the Anseba region. Over the last three decades, the region has experienced several droughts as well as erratically distributed rains. Other problems include cultivation of marginal land without fallowing, over-grazing, and inappropriate land management, lack of investment in land improvement, inadequate animal feed, depletion of underground water and the natural limitations of the rugged topography.

Building Wildfire Management Capacities to Enhance Adaptation of the Vulnerable Mountain Forests of Armenia - Lessons from Recent Experience

This publication captures lessons learned from the UNDP-supported initiative, “Adaptation to Climate Change Impacts in Mountain Forest Ecosystems of Armenia”, which is financed by the Global Environment Facility Trust Fund’s Strategic Priority for Adaptation (SPA).  Against the backdrop of increasing risk of climate change induced impacts in the unique mountain forest ecosystems of Armenia and especially the intensifying forest fire problem under the aridifying climate conditions, this publication presents the approaches chosen by the project to build the capacities of relevant stakeholders
