Foreign aid helps northern provinces overcome climate change

Published: 28/09/2012 03:45



The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) has approved a US$3.74 million project to upgrade climate resilient infrastructure in northern mountain provinces.

The project, funded by the Global Environment Fund (GEF), the Asian Development Bank (ADB), and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), will be implemented in 15 northern mountain provinces from 2012 to 2015.

It aims to introduce effective ameliorating measures against the potential adverse impact of climate change. It also seeks to reinforce the policymaking framework for sustainable development in the beneficiaries.

The project’s purview includes monitoring current regulations related to climate change, proposing ideas for institutional reform, and encouraging the consideration of climate change adaptation as part of the mainstream of rural infrastructure policy and planning

Provinces will first receive assistance in identifying vulnerable infrastructure projects. Low cost climate change impact minimisation measures will then be modeled in an effort to make the most out of local resources.
