Approval Date: 6 October 2010
Project Officer: Marilou Drilon, PARD
Type of Intervention: Analytical study
The project aims to develop a strategic framework for targeted climate change adaptation measures in two countries to help them sustain their livelihood and provide guidelines for upscaling pro-poor climate change adaptation measures in other Pacific countries.
Poverty-Environment Linkage: In early 2011, participatory poverty and environment assessments and field surveys were conducted in select communities in the two target countries Findings were used to develop a strategic framework for climate resilience investment and capacity building in small island communities. In November 2011, the draft strategic framework was presented in participatory community and national consultations with stakeholders in the two countries.
