As of: April 2020

Objective and activities

Implemented in cooperation with Brazil’s Ministry of the Environment, the project´s objective is to raise the country’s climate resilience by effectively implementing its National Agenda for Climate Change Adaptation. In this context, the Environment Ministry is being supported in its role as a coordinating institution, e.g., with the help of management instruments like M&E for adaptation. Furthermore, capacities in selected sectors, states and municipalities will be developed, in order to implement public policies, methods and instruments for the mainstreaming of climate change adaptation as well as replicable adaptation measures. In parallel, the project promotes adaptation of the private sector and civil society though awareness raising measures. Finally, the project’s lessons learnt will be disseminated at national and international level.
