Regional: Enabling Climate Change Responses in Asia and the Pacific - Supporting Investments in Water and Climate Change (Subproject 1)

Sovereign Project | 44158-062 Status: Closed

Summary

Supporting Investments in Water and Climate Change

This subproject will improve climate change projections for water management, and impact assessments and adaptation strategies for selected river basins and projects in these basins, with guidelines and advice to policy and decision makers. It will include close engagement with project and river basin managers, scientists and knowledge managers. Knowledge will be disseminated to leaders through a steering group of select policymakers, regulators and civil society representatives.
