The TA will (i) contribute to regional policy dialogue on economic costs and benefits of unilateral and regional actions on climate change adaptation, (ii) review existing climate policies
and measures at the country and regional levels, (iii) identify policy gaps and constraints in implementing appropriate adaptation measures, (iv) conduct economic assessment of the costs and benefits of unilateral and regional adaptation actions, and (v) suggest adaptation measures based on low-carbon strategies in participating DMCs. It will cover five DMCs Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, and Sri Lanka and possibly India.
This TA will coordinate with other ongoing and planned climate change initiatives in the participating DMCs and build upon existing studies. It will cover the whole region, as no such
study has yet been conducted. Although there were studies in India, and to some extent in Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, limited studies were conducted in Bhutan and the Maldives.
