Economic, Social and Solidarity Insertion for Resilience in the Governorate of Kairouan (IESS Adapt) Tunisia

Tunisie

The Adaptation Fund was established to finance concrete adaptation projects and programmes in developing countries that are parties to the Kyoto Protocol and are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.

Titre : Economic, Social and Solidarity Insertion for Resilience in the Governorate of Kairouan (IESS Adapt) Tunisia

Country : Tunisia

Date approbation : 06/01/2020
Durée : 5 years

Contexte
According to the Tunisia’s Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC-2015), Tunisia is considered to be one of the countries most exposed to climate change in the Mediterranean. The main risks which it is likely to confront are temperature increases, reduced precipitation, rising sea levels and escalating extreme weather phenomena (torrential rains, floods and droughts). These risks are likely to result in major environmental and socio-economic vulnerability that will particularly affect water resources, agriculture and natural ecosystems.

Objectives
This Adaptation Fund funded integrated natural resource management and livelihoods project will help ensure sustainable land management and improve the climate resilience of the rural climate vulnerable poor. The goal of the project is to contribute to poverty eradication in the Kairouan region through providing the rural poor the means to adapt to climate change through sustainable environmental management and livelihoods. The project will protect against the negative climate change impacts by simultaneously improving ecosystem functions, promoting sustainable land management (SLM) and protecting rural climate vulnerable livelihoods. The immediate objective is to increase household incomes through SLM practices such as reducing water losses, encouraging groundwater replenishment ; reducing damage to productive land and rural transport infrastructure from the increased prevalence of damaging torrential rain ; decreasing water insecurity ; and introducing drought resistant agricultural technologies and alternative climate-proofed livelihood schemes.
