Building Capacity on Climate Change Adaptation in Coastal Areas of Pakistan

This project aims to address the urgent need of coastal communities in Sindh and Baluchistan to adapt to the problem of sea level rise and its associated issues. Delta wide vulnerability assessments will be undertaken to provide a contextual and policy analysis of the threats faced by the region, including proposed mechanisms of addressing these existing threats and emerging vulnerabilities. Using the data collected, two local adaptation plans will be developed to build the capacity of local and district authorities in the target areas to address climate change, and to develop adaptation plans in a collaborative and consultative manner, leading to the implementation of pilot adaptation projects that focus on ecosystem based solutions to climate change. Adaptation will be integrated into sectoral policies and development plans, while addressing the issues of water allocation and sustainable flow requirements. The target districts in Sindh are Thatta and Badin, and the coastal villages targeted in these districts are Keti Bunder and Kharo chan. In Baluchistan, Gwadar is the targeted district, and Jiwani is the coastal village that this project focuses on. Additionally, the following deltas will be targeted- The Indus Delta, Sundarbans Delta (India, Bangladesh) and Dasht (Gwatar Bay) delta (Pakistan, Iran).
