Regional: Strengthening Climate Risk and Resilience Capacity of Pacific Developing Member Countries, Phase 1

Sovereign Project | 43428-012

Summary

The R-CDTA is an initiative under the Strategic Climate Fund (under the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience) under the Climate Investment Fund (CIF). The objective of PPCR is to help strengthen climate adaptation risk and resilience planning in Pacific developing member countries (DMCs). The R-CDTA will implement PPCR phase I (2010-2011) for PNG and Tonga, both of which were approved by the CIF PPCR Sub-committee in late October 2010. PPCR Phase I will (a) prepare a detailed design, or Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR), for PPCR Phase II (2011-2015) and (b) undertake institution-strengthening, capacity-building and awareness-raising activities necessary for Phase II (investment phase, 2011-2015) effectiveness. PPCR PNG and Tonga Phase 1 country assistance will support: (a) mainstreaming climate change adaptation into core development planning and budgeting of ministries/agencies responsible for provision of infrastructure, noting that economic, social and health impacts (eg.

PPCR PNG and Tonga Phase 1 country assistance will support: (a) mainstreaming climate change adaptation into core development planning and budgeting of ministries/agencies responsible for provision of infrastructure, noting that economic, social and health impacts (eg. dengue and vector borne diseases and livelihoods impacts) will also be included as important considerations in PPCR infrastructure design and implementation; (b) strengthening engagement of civil society (including research institutions), private sector and consideration of gender impacts; and (c) detailed assessments and related activities that will lead to the preparation of the SPCR for each country, linked to the regional SPCR. The PNG and Tonga SPCRs will identify and proposed specific investments for mainstreaming climate change, up-scaling climate resilient investments, climate proofing infrastructure, and build capacities for effective climate change adaptation in development planning and implementation at the national level.
