Project Title
Reversing Environmental Degradation and
Rural Poverty through Adaptation to
Climate Change in Drought Stricken Areas in
Southern India: A Hydrological Unit Pilot
Project Approach
Baseline Scenario
Scientific confirmation of climate change impact
on agriculture and allied sectors
Communities in drought prone areas the most
vulnerable
Proven capacities of the community to selfregulate
Demonstrated in case of groundwater management
through APFAMGS Project
Experiences from other NEX projects of FAO
(AMEF and APWAM) relevant to climate change
adaptation
The GEF Alternative
Broadening the agenda of CBOs to climate
change adaptation
Project Goal: Communities in pilot
Hydrological Units (HUs) prepared to face
consequences of climate change for
sustained livelihoods
Overall Objective: Contribute to establishing
a knowledge base for large-scale intervention
on climate change
The GEF Alternative
Expected Outcomes:



Communities in pilot HUs understand
implications of climate change on livelihood
systems
Communities in pilot HUs have knowledge and
skills of addressing broader issues of climate
change
Mechanisms established to sustain livelihoods in
view of climate change
The GEF Alternative
Outputs of Outcome 1:



Understanding of climate change at HU level
documented and bench-marked
HU level understanding of climate change
contextualized with global level knowledge
Awareness generated on climate change impact
on livelihoods
The GEF Alternative
Outputs of Outcome 2:




Critical issues related to climate change and
livelihoods, at HU level, identified
Project Staff oriented on issues of climate change
Community Resource Persons (CRP) oriented
on issues of climate change
Climate Change Schools (CCS) conducted
The GEF Alternative
Outputs of Outcome 3:




CBOs oriented on climate change and livelihood
issues
Necessary arrangements made to sustain CBOs
Community Action initiated on climate change
adaptation on HU level
Learning from the project disseminated at local,
national and global level
The GEF Alternative
Sustainability and Replicability







CBOs registered
Proven self-governance capacity
Willingness to make informed decisions
Proven fund-raising Capacity
Proven replicability of the knowledge based
intervention
Replicable anywhere in the world
Learning dissemination, at local, national and
global level, is in built in the project design
Conformity with GEF Criteria
Focal Area: Climate Change
Strategic long term objective 8 – to support
pilot demonstration projects for adaptation
to climate change.
Conformity with GEF Criteria
Incremental Benefits:


Government investments for climate change
adaptation is more in terms of infrastructure and
equipment
Preparing communities with knowledge and
skills to adapt to climate change is the
incremental benefits
Global Environmental Benefits:


An alternative approach to climate change
adaptation replicable at global level
Increased Carbon sequestration
Conformity with GEF Criteria
