Titre : Climate-induced Disaster Risk Reduction Project (CDRRP)

Adapting Afghan Communities to Climate-Induced Disaster Risks

Pays : Afghanistan

Durée : June 2017 // May 2022

Rural livelihoods in Afghanistan are threatened by the impacts of climate change and climate-induced disasters. Climate change projections indicate that total annual precipitation will decrease, with greater variability between seasons. This is expected to result in increased frequency and severity of climate-induced disasters such as flooding, drought and landslides, which will lead to loss of lives, displacement of communities, and loss of agricultural crops and livestock. Rural communities in Jawzjan and Nangarhar Provinces which have limited resources to invest in adaptation measures to reduce the risks posed by droughts, floods and landslides are particularly vulnerable to climate-induced disasters. To address the problem of increased vulnerability to the effects of climate change the project proposes to promote community-based and gender-sensitive adaptation to the impacts of climate change in Jawzjan and Nangarhar Provinces. This will be achieved through the implementation of activities under four complementary components. Firstly, the project will build capacities for decision-making and implementation of gender-sensitive climateinduced disaster risk reduction measures by vulnerable communities. Secondly, community-based early warning systems will be established to improve monitoring of and response to climate-induced disasters in targeted communities. Thirdly, climate-resilient livelihood options will be promoted within targeted communities, including construction of climate-resilient habitats and shelters, and diversification of livelihoods with a focus on women, youth and marginalised community groups. Finally, capacities of national and sub-national government institutions to integrate climate change into development planning will be enhanced
