E-Discussion on Climate Resilience

How to build resilience through Decentralized Water Resources Management?

Join us for our e-discussion on Climate Resilience starting March 20. Experts from Cambodia, Nepal, Jamaica and Saint Lucia will share their experiences and lessons learned from the implementation of Decentralized Water Resource Management projects in their countries and regions.

Learn and discuss with our practitioners how resilience can be built in communities most vulnerable to climate change and disasters. We also welcome your participation by sharing your experiences – not only in Water Resource Management, but also from other Climate Resilience projects. We aim for a lively knowledge exchange with your questions and contributions. This will be a great opportunity to get to know colleagues with similar tasks and challenges ahead and to share experiences.

Leveraging Irrigation to Boost Agricultural Production and Improve Livelihoods in Mozambique

CIF deploys a variety of monitoring and evaluation tools to test project effectiveness and efficiency. Impact evaluations have proven highly effective in delivering rigorous findings that aid in course correction and in understanding which approaches are most effective.

CIF’s support to Mozambique via the African Development Bank’s Sustainable Land & Water Resources Management Project (SLWRMP) includes such an impact evaluation. The project seeks to address pressing development challenges affecting agriculture-dependent communities in Mozambique: rural poverty, food insecurity, and land degradation.

Sixty to eighty percent of annual precipitation in Mozambique falls during a single rainy season, meaning that rain-fed agriculture can only be practiced in a fraction of the year. Moreover, the country faces frequent floods and droughts, making yields highly volatile. Within this context, irrigation has the potential to dramatically improve yields.

Building Resilience through Decentralised Water Resource Management in the Caribbean

Water resources are greatly impacted by the effects of climate change, and so it comes as no surprise that many of the programs implemented by PPCR countries focus on enhancing water resilience. The case studies presented here, provide some examples of how PPCR countries in the Caribbean are working towards achieving this goal through decentralized solutions.

Innovative or Ancient? Increasing Water Resilience in Nepal

Climate change introduces new uncertainty to the availability of freshwater resources in many parts of the world. To reduce the impact to vulnerable communities, global climate efforts need to focus on transformative actions that increase water security. The Climate Investment Funds’ Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) is funding many such initiatives.
