The Productive Landscapes Resilient to Climate Change and Strengthened Socioeconomic Networks in Guatemala project aims to increase climate resilience in productive landscapes and socio-economic systems in pilot municipalities that are threatened by climate change and climatic variability impacts, in particular hydro-meteorological events that are increasing in frequency and intensity. It will achieve this through a suite of key outcomes that range from enhancing institutional capabilities, supporting more resilient local economies, and increasing communities’ adaptive capacity.

With financing from the Global Environment Facility’s Least Developed Country Countries Fund, and supported by UNDP and the Ministry of of Water and Environment, the Strengthening Climate Information and Early Warning Systems (SCIEWS) project in Uganda aims to support adaptation planning via an enhanced climate monitoring network and early warning systems.
The Samoa PACC project is working with the government to implement a community-based integrated coastal protection model, to increase the resilience of its coastal communities and infrastructure to the impacts of climate change. The project is working at three sites – Tafitoala village on Upolu and Lefagaoalii and Lalomalava on Savai’i
Vanuatu, as one of the participating PACC countries, is improving the roading infrastructure on Epi Island to reduce climate-related risks. Epi's inhabitants depend on local transport infrastructure to transport their crops to market, their sick to hospital, and to connect to the outside world. By relocating coastal roads, rehabilitating sea walls, and protecting the coastline through re-vegetation of native species, these long-term adaptation measures are preserving livelihoods and improving climate resilience.
With the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) acting as the Executing Agency and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as the Implementing Agency, the Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change (PACC) project is working in 14 Pacific Island countries to reduce vulnerability and increase resilience to the adverse effects of climate change.
