Enabling Southern Pakistani civil society to effectively adapt to Climate Change

 

 

Project Objectives

Building the capacity of southern Pakistanís civil society to adapt to climate change.
At local level, the project will enhance the capacity of CSOs and communities to identify their most pressing issues and influence policy formation.
At national level, networks of CSOs and communities will be supported to collectively advocate for adaptation strategies and policies in Pakistan that specifically address the vulnerabilities and rights of poor and at-risk communities.
The project will support poverty reduction in hard to reach rural areas, by enabling local CSOs to design and implement 30 replicable community-based adaptation projects, to demonstrate how vulnerable communities can respond to the impacts of climate change.
Global advocacy will include providing policy inputs and sharing learning through relevant international fora (i.e. UNFCCC meetings) and networks (i.e. LEAD Network, BOND Climate Change Group).
 

 

 

Project Brief

This project is needed to address the urgent and growing threat of climate change facing poor and vulnerable communities in Punjab and Sindh provinces in Pakistan. The project will empower civil society to effectively articulate demand for an enabling policy environment whereby poor communities can adapt to climate change and reduce their vulnerabilities. The project will address lack of capacity, lack of effective models, low and ineffectively articulated public demand for the Govt. to act, and a lack of awareness among vulnerable communities as to their rights in relation to climate change. It will not only empower communities to take action, promoting a bottom-up approach to policy making, it will also undertake 30 micro-adaptation projects through communities and CSOs, in coordination with local Govt. These projects will aim to increase the adaptive capacities of local communities through introduction of technologies (mobile flood warning systems), increased knowledge for adaptation (changing cropping patterns, under-water water reservoirs), introduction of alternative livelihoods, particularly for women and other vulnerable groups (poultry farming, livestock farming, etc).

This project aims to increase the capacity of poor and vulnerable communities in Pakistan to implement climate change adaptations to protect their livelihoods and contribute to bottom-up policy development.

Expression Of Interest (EOI)

CLEAR project is a 5 years initiative of LEAD Pakistan focusing on Climate Change impacts on the lives of poor people and farmers in Southern Sindh and Punjab and streamline their local climate adaptation practices and develop district based Local Adaptation Plans of Actions. LEAD Pakistan intends to implement project activities through local Civil Society Organizations.

Climate Leadership for Effective Adaptation and Resilience (CLEAR) project was conceived through a participatory approach of LEAD Pakistan to address the urgent and growing threats of climate change to poor and vulnerable communities in Punjab and Sindh provinces in Pakistan. The project addresses lack of capacity, lack of effective models, low and ineffectively articulated public demand for the Govt. to act, and a lack of awareness among vulnerable communities as to their rights in relation to climate change.  CLEAR Project is not only empowering communities to practice climate change adaptation but also promoting a bottom-up approach for people friendly policy making.

The project enables communities to implement climate adaptive technologies (mobile flood warning systems) and facilitate increased knowledge for adaptation (changing cropping patterns, under-water water reservoirs), introduction of alternative livelihoods, particularly for women and other vulnerable groups (poultry farming, livestock farming etc.).
