Communication and awareness
Despite the effects of climate change being increasingly tangible for people in many parts of the world, there is a strong need for creating greater awareness of the full implications and direct and indirect impacts of a changing climate in both rural and urban areas. Developing efficient knowledge systems that reach out and engage can have a profound implication for speeding up the process of adapting our societies to become more low-carbon and resilient, through providing a better basis as well as support for decision-making. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.

Georgia is exposed to hydrometeorological hazards and natural disasters. Frequent natural disasters include landslides, floods, flash-flooding, mudflows, droughts, avalanches, heavy winds and storms. In recent years, the number of natural disasters has increased nearly three times and, in many cases, have been considered as catastrophic, causing fatalities and leading to significant economic losses.
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:Approach:
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:ReviewCountries: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.
Technical guidance and support to conduct a technology needs assessment and a technology action plan for ParaguayType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Sectors:
Paraguay is a landlocked developing country with a highly dependent economy on the primary sector, which makes it highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, such as temperature increase, pattern change in rainfall, and intensity and frequency increase of extreme weather events.

FAST TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE
The effects of climate change – recurring droughts, soil salinity and floods – are being felt keenly in the agricultural sector and preventing vulnerable population groups from achieving food security. Much of the equipment used in the sector is in a state of disrepair and little agricultural produce is processed.
