Project description

C4ES developed a Project Identification Form for this Global Environment Facility/Least Developed Countries Fund-funded project. The project will increase the resilience of local communities to the effects of climate change. This increased resilience will be achieved though: i) increasing the institutional capacity of national and local government; ii) revising policies and strategies to mainstream climate risk considerations; iii) demonstrating Ecosystem‑based Adaptation (EbA) interventions; and iv) integrating EbA and integrated environmental management into development planning. These EbA interventions will be focused on wetland and forest ecosystems in the Bangweulu Wetlands and surrounding areas.
