Development of a Multi-Hazard Platform for forecasting local level climate extremes and physical hazards for Iskandar MalaysiaType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:
A flurry of recent disasters in Malaysia has prompted increased concern over the impacts of extreme temperatures, strong winds and air pollution. These events have also revealed poor coordination and weak forecasting capacity for the prediction of floods and landslides, which has become increasingly important for major cities faced with the effects of climate change.

Nepal is highly vulnerable to climate impacts, especially in the water sector where resources have been significantly depleted. One of the most susceptible districts is Ramechap, located above the Sunkoshi River, where the land is extremely dry and decreasing precipitation is severely impacting farmers. Water resources are especially vulnerable at high elevations where they are more sensitive to variability in rainfall patterns and timing, which contribute to increased drought frequency.
Climate risk assessment for subnational adaptation and establishment of a local climate information system for climate change adaptation (LISA) in CambodiaType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:
Cambodia is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change and has difficulties in implementing the country’s climate change response due to a lack of available quality-assured information and knowledge on climate change in the country. Significant gaps still remain in creating the conditions for science-based climate-informed decision making, in particular related to the production, access and use of climate information at local levels.
Development of a methodology to create climate-smart municipalities in Togo and the preparation of action plans for adaptation and mitigation to climate change for 4 of these municipalitiesType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:Sectors:Approach:
Togo is a predominantly rural country with a low urbanization rate of 37.7%. However, the urban population is growing annually by an average of 4.5% for all the country's cities and 5% for the capital, Lomé. With this growth dynamic, more than 50% of Togolese will live in an urban center in 2030. Challenges arise in areas such as land, water, energy, greenhouse gas emissions and waste. The aim of this technical assistance is to define a conceptual framework for "climate smart" municipalities in close cooperation with all stakeholders.
Technology adaptation program for farmers to minimize the impacts of climate change on coconut lands in Puttalam DistrictType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Sectors:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Sri Lanka is the fourth largest coconut producing country in the world with the average production of 2800 – 3000 million nuts. For the last two decades, coconut growers were facing many problems which ultimately encountered in the reduction of production and profitability of their plantations. The main factor that contributed to this reduction was the adverse effects caused by the prolong droughts as a result of climate change.
Feasibility study and technological solutions for the upgrade into an integrated solid waste management systemType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Sectors:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Jordan is one of four most water scarce countries in the world. This scarcity impacts every aspect of life within the country and is its greatest challenge to economic growth and development. Climate change is acting as a threat multiplier aggravating existing water vulnerability and availability due to decreased precipitation and higher rates of evaporation, as a result of increased temperature. It is also anticipated to increase the intensity of droughts in the country and the occurrence of flood events.
