Adaptation to Climate Change through Integrated Water Harvesting Technologies in Yemen

Yemen

Titre : Adaptation to Climate Change through Integrated Water Harvesting Technologies in Yemen

Thus, the project titled “Adaptation to Climate Change through Integrated Water Harvesting Technologies in Yemen” aims to reintroduce traditional and innovative water harvesting techniques to improve water availability to rainfed farmers and pastoralists who are highly vulnerable to climate change.

Country : Yemen

Climate-Related Hazards Addressed : Drought/Water Scarcity

Implementing Agencies & Partnering Organizations : Ministry of Water and Environment, Republic of Yemen ; UNDP ; GEF

Project
As a Least Developed Country (LDC), Yemen is highly vulnerable to climate change-related impacts such as drought, extreme flooding, and sea level rise. These are serious concerns as Yemen’s economy largely depends on its natural resources. In addition to having a predominantly semi-arid to arid climate, more than half the agriculture is rain-fed. Coupled with a rise in both droughts and floods, the Yemenis face an acute challenge in adapting to climate change induced stress on water resources.

Primary Beneficiaries : Agriculturalists and pastoralists of 6 governorates of Yemen - Ibb, Taiz, Sana’a, Dhamar, Al Mahweet and Al Mukalla

Funding Source :Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF)
Financing Amount : $5,387,400 (As of 22 January 2013)
Co-Financing Total : $19,601,596 (As of 22 January 2013)

Adaptation Learning Mechanism (UNDP)

Adaptation Learning Mechanism (ALM) UNDP : As an interactive online portal for sharing adaptation knowledge with improved availability and accessibility of knowledge for adaptation, the ALM has allowed for a broader dissemination of good adaptation practices
