Adaptation of Water Resource Management to Climate Change: development of management tools and sustainable financing mechanisms in three representative ecoregions of Peru

Objective and activities

The project strengthens the adaptive capacity and resilience of vulnerable communities and the conservation of important ecosystems in Peru by establishing water management and long-term financing mechanisms. This is reached through five main outputs: 1.) Establishment of “water councils” that take participatory decisions about water management schemes in defined watersheds and are supported by key actors; 2.) Establishment and/or strengthening of three water funds as sustainable financing bodies for adaptation measures; 3.)  Implementation of adaptation measures, including ecosystem-based measures, through private-public investments; 4.) Implementation of awareness raising campaigns for more efficient water usage; 5.) Capacity building of communities in disaster prevention and management
