The Drini and Mati River Deltas in Albania are experiencing stressful impacts on biodiversity and ecosystems as a result of climate change. There is currently a lack of institutional and individual capacities to undertake a rigorous assessment or to address the potential climate change impacts on biodiversity. The aim of this project is to address key risks and vulnerabilities in the coastal areas of Drini Mati River Deltas of the Northern Adriatic by developing the capacity to adapt to climate change.
Abstract: Rainfall decline, mean annual temperature and climatic hazard frequency are expected as climate change unfolds in the Comoro archipelago. As a result of these impacts, climate change will negatively impact water supply and quality, both of which are already affected by inadequate management of water resources and deforestation.
Project Objective: to enhance Burkina Faso's resilience and adaptation capacity to climate change risks in the agro-sylvo-pastoral sector. The specific objective of the proposed project is to implement priority interventions that will reduce vulnerability of communities and food-production systems in Burkina Faso threatened by changes in mean climatic conditions and climatic variability.
ABSTRACT: In Bangladesh, many communities are situated close to the shoreline and are reliant on agriculture and fishing for their livelihoods. Rising sea levels and changes in the frequency and intensity of tropical cyclones are raising the incidences and severity of flooding, salt water intrusion and erosion, not to mention loss of livelihoods, shelter and life. Given these circumstances, the Government of Bangladesh is implementing a project to reduce the vulnerability of communities in five coastal districts most susceptible to the effects of climate change.
In Cambodia, women make up 65% of farmers, directly contributing to the country's food security and the national agricultural output. They are also the collectors, users and managers of water. Recognition of women’s crucial role as economic and social agents in Cambodia’s water and agricultural sectors is a key starting point for engendering the UNDP’s projects on climate change adaptation. Yet, obstacles continue to limit women’s access to human and financial capital.
