$15 million allocated to climate change pilot


Inter-American Development Bank

A total of $15 million has been budgeted for the Climate Resilience II Adaptation Programme and Financing Mechanism (pilot), as part of measures to bolster support for climate change activities.

This is outlined in the 2015/16 Estimates of Expenditure, now before the House of Representatives.

The programme, which is expected to start in April 2015, will generate information on approaches to address climate change challenges, help mainstream climate change into development planning and process and disseminate results across sectors. The targets of the programme are: to mainstream climate change through sector strategies and action plans, climate change awareness and training programmes and climate change inputs for National Spatial Plan; implement adaptation measures in the sub-watershed through consultancy services – vulnerability assessment and aquaponics system; and procure office equipment for the Project Management Unit.

The project, which is being implemented by the Ministry of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change, is slated for completion in March 2020. It is being funded by the Inter- American Development Bank (IDB).
