Climate changes are evident throughout Burkina Faso with the Eastern and South-western parts of the country being increasingly hit by high temperatures and pockets of drought. In response, and primarily focused on facilitating changes at the local level, this project is working in 6 villages to develop strategies to adapt to climate change.
This project will improve climate-resilience in the coastal zone of the island of Mauritius. The overall approach is to work at specific coastal sites to protect livelihoods. The coastal protection measures will provide direct benefits to up to 3,150 people whose jobs, houses, and families are currently threatened by coastal erosion, storm surges, and tidal flooding.
This project is working to apply the principles of Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EBA) to increase climate change resilience at a landscape level. Financed by the Adaptation Fund, UNDP is supporting the Ministry of Nature, Environment and Tourism in Mongolia to protect the water resources supplied by mountain and steppe ecosystems.
Rising sea levels and increased frequency of tropical cyclones and flooding, are impacting livelihoods, shelter and life for coastal communities in Bangladesh.In direct response UNDP is supporting community-based adaptation options. By planting protective and productive vegetation, this project has established a ‘green shield’ surrounding some of Bangladesh’s most vulnerable communities.
The SWoCK project in the Solomon Islands will strengthen ability of communities in Solomon Islands to make informed decisions and manage likely climate change driven pressures on food production and management systems.
