Facilitating Climate Resilience in Tajikistan
The project is expected to utilize the climate and disaster risk information effectively in order to leverage climate finance.
To contribute to building climate resilient communities across Tajikistan and address specific threats to lives and physical and social infrastructure in disaster prone mountainous regions of Tajikistan, and safeguard investments into sustainable human development against climate-induced natural hazards including avalanches, floods and mudflows.
Component 1: Climate and disaster risk information is effectively utilized to facilitate access to climate finance Activity 1.1. Validate required assessments and undertake consultations for the preparation of project proposals to access climate finance.
This Activity will include evaluation and assessments of past interventions and efforts proposed to be scaled up, and additional consultations to establish baseline information to be included into project proposals to access climate finance.
Activity 1.2. Develop a package of site level interventions.
This Activity will result in development of a package of structural and non-structural risk reduction projects which have a strong community-management component. These packages will include structural, i.e. infrastructure rehabilitation, and non-structural measures, such as improved land use planning, and warning systems, to reduce future risk at lower costs, in addition to structural measures as avalanche protection, embankments, retention basins and other physical interventions.
Activity 1.3. Develop a range of cost-transfer (e.g., insurance) and funding mechanisms (e.g., income generating investments) for local use in funding risk reduction.
This activity will increase local level capacities to initiate climate risk management, and provide local counterpart funding for external funding.
Activity 1.4. Undertake intervention site community consultations.
This activity will result in a greater understanding of community perceptions of climate related hazards and risk, preferences for risk management options and opportunities for engagement in risk management actions. These consultations will focus on gender and age differences in the understanding of climate-related hazards and risks and management options.
