Philippines Climate Change Adaptation Project (PhilCCAP)
Objective
Develop and demonstrate approaches that would enable targeted communities
to adapt to the potential impacts of climate variability and charge.
Description
PhilCCAP is a pilot project which has the objective of developing and demonstrating
approaches that would enable targeted communities to adapt to the potential impacts
of climate variability and change. This would be achieved by strengthening existing
institutional frameworks for climate change adaptation, and by the demonstration of
cost-effective adaptation strategies in agriculture and natural resources management.
The project will increase communities’ adaptive capacity by improving: a) farm
management capability under conditions of climate risk; b) access to information on
weather forecasting and climate patterns; c) access to risk management options such as
weather index insurance; and d) strengthening ecosystems. The primary beneficiaries
include poor farmers who often suffer climate-related losses, and other vulnerable groups
that depend on natural resources for their livelihoods.
