INCREASING RESILIENCE TO CLIMATE IMPACTS OF VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES AND CRITICAL ECOSYSTEMS IN THE EASTERN HIMALAYAS OF INDIA


Objective and activities

A study funded by BMUB provided data to identify some of the most critical issues and sites for enhanced climate change adaptation, where it is apparent that climate impacts will render communities and ecosystems more vulnerable unless certain practices are modified. However, more detailed studies are needed to further refine strategies, and to identify and prioritise additional vulnerable areas and communities. A feasibility study and a preliminary climate vulnerability assessment were therefore being financed, as well as a first implementation of pilots on a minor scale in already identified sectors and regions. Based on the results of the study, planned interventions can be adjusted and further proposals for adequate investment measures were formulated.
