Mobile: 0844277909/Land line:  023049100
Email: kriangkrai.chotchaisathit@undp.org

Description

It will showcase successful past and ongoing Southern-Grown Development Solutions (SDSs) related to climate change adaptation, as a response to the problem of extreme climatic events. The exhibition is designed as UNDP's concrete response to help the global South realize its shared aspirations for achieving sustainable development through the sharing and transfer of SDSs. It also constitutes one of the Special Units three global and United Nations system-wide South-South support platforms.

1. Community-based Adaptation through Coastal Afforestation, Department of Forests, Bangladesh: Mr. Paramesh Nandy

The project will showcase how afforestation programmes on newly accreted lands in the extensive delta of Bangladesh can be redesigned to maximize adaptation benefits. The project is working with communities to trial innovative coastal plantation arrangements, using a combination of mangrove species, fruit trees, production timber species and vegetables, to increase livelihood resilience. One trial plantation arrangement is called the Fish, Forest and Fruit (FFF) Model, which uses a combination of protective and productive vegetation, mound and ditch land structures and water ponds to provide multiple benefits for the community. These benefits respond to protective as well as economic needs of the communities and ensure that the encroachment of sensitive new greenbelt structures is reduced.

2. GLOF Risk Management in Bhutan: Mr. Dowchu Drukpa

Every year from June to September, a workforce of 350 workers is trekking to Thorthomilake, one of Bhutan’s 25 most dangerous glacier lakes. The workers, both male and female, work with pickaxes and shovels to increase controlled water drainage from the lake and thereby reduce the pressure of melt water on the thinning moraine dam. The overall target of the project is to lower the lake water level by 5m, which is expected to be achieved by June 2013. An automated GLOF Early Warning System has been constructed in the valleys downstream of the hazardous lake, which can effectively warn communities and economic installations (such as hydropower plants) from any impending GLOF hazards. While initial surveys conducted before the beginning of the project have predicted a GLOF event from Thorthormi lake as early as 2010, the project has successfully managed to avert this disaster.

3. South-South Cooperation between the Pacific and Caribbean Small Islands States: Karen Bernard

The film “Looking South Across the Oceans: Promoting Cooperation Among Small Island Developing States” emphasizes the vulnerability of small island developing states (SIDS) to disasters and the impact of climate change, and tells the story of how SIDS in the Pacific and Caribbean have embarked on a journey to share knowledge and experiences to strengthen the resilience of their communities to natural disasters and climate change. It highlights that many adaptable solutions to the challenges posed by climate change and disasters can be found by looking South. The film documents one activity under the project “South-South Cooperation between Pacific and Caribbean Small Islands Developing States (SIDS) on Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management”   which encourages a systematic sharing of knowledge and experiences to strengthen community safety and resilience to a range of natural disasters in both regions.  A delegation from regional Pacific organizations visited four Caribbean countries to view a series of best practices which are suitable to SIDS.  In Jamaica the group visited a flood early warning system which is simple, effective and easily operated by the local community.  In Cuba the group ventured to Pinar del Rio province to observe a local risk management centre which is equipped and staffed to respond to cyclones and other hazards. Coastal risk management techniques were discussed in Barbados and a visit made to a volcano monitoring station in St. Lucia, in addition to discussion on the value of women’s leadership in disaster risk management. 

4. Asian Regional Initiative on Climate Change Education (RICE) Project: Mr. Kim Myoung Shin

The Asian RICE Project is an example of Triangular Cooperation, in which a developed country (Korea) is assisting the learning and sharing among developing countries (Laos, Thailand, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Burma). The strategy is to link the Korean technology to the SU/SSC knowledge networks, communication and partnerships and to mobilize the known capacity in education, science and technology towards achieving the internationally agreed development goal, including MDGs. The Korean institutions partner with organizations in developing countries with relevant and complementary experience to Korea, to deliver more effective development results under the triangular cooperation modality.

5. Partners for Resilience:  Elike van Sluis

Through implementation of the PfR programme in nine countries, the community-based, ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction/Climate Change Adaptation approaches will be tested ina very different environmental, social and cultural contexts, allowing for comparisons and drawing generic lessons learnt for subsequent global sharing, outreach and policy dialogues. This 'Linking and Learning' component of the PfR programme is led by the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre, with an overall learning goal to develop an integrated DRR/CCA/Ecosystem Resource Management approach to be applied at both community and institutional level. Mechanisms that facilitate resilience-building at different geographic scales will be investigated. The PfR programme will be implemented in 30 communities in 5 districts in the Nusa Tenggara Timur Province, Ende, Sikka, Lembata, Kupang and Timor Tengah Selatan.

Lead Organisation/Focal Point

Will Galloway
Climate Change and Resiliency
Keio University
Tel: 81 466 47 0284

Email: galloway@sfc.keio.ac.jp

Description

The Environmental Innovators program is a graduate school devoted to research on climate change mitigation and adaptation in Asia and Africa.  Currently the school is particularly focused on the question of resiliency and how it can be created and promoted. The school is organized so that bookwork is balanced by fieldwork in a project-based curriculum that includes access to study in several fields, including:

  • Environmental Design ( Architecture and Urban Planning )
  • Environmental Business
  • Environmental Planning and Policy
  • Social Entrepreneurship

An essential part of the program is multi-disciplinary co-operation. This comes directly from our awareness that the problems surrounding climate change are too large to take on by focusing only on a single field of study. The program is designed to give students access to experts and information from related fields as they pursue their own research objectives. The program is also built around the concept that true environmental innovation cannot be achieved without building up practical experience in the field and so students are required to undertake internships and fieldwork while completing more typical academic studies. The program is offered in both English and Japanese. The marketplace is intended to offer a chance to highlight the program and to show some of our recent projects in the wake of the Tohoku disaster in Japan as well as outside of Japan.

BOOTH NO: 18 - Community-based Adaptation – learning to work together!

Lead Organisation/Focal Point

E-mail: ravesloot@careclimatechange.org

Description

The CARE booth at the Adaptation Forum 2011 Market Place will showcase our work to reduce the vulnerability of poor and vulnerable people in developing countries to the negative impacts of climate change. Forum articipants can also pick up environmentally-friendly electronic copies of CARE’s tools and briefs, and view video presentations demonstrating our community-based approach to adaptation. All materials can also be accessed at www.careclimatechange.org 

At the booth, we will also share exiting, recent thinking about collaboration, joint learning and action with our partners WWF, IUCN and IIED through the Ecosystems and Livelihoods Adaptation Network (ELAN). ELAN aims to enhance poor and marginalized people's resilience to the adverse impacts of climate change by integrating ecosystem and right-based approaches into adaptation policies and practices. Learn more about ELAN at www.elanadapt.net.

 We invite you to our booth to see how ELAN is supporting more collaboration for sustainable, inclusive adaptation. At this year’s Adaptation Forum, ELAN is conducting Social Network Analysis of the Forum participants. There will be over 800 people, organizations and networks attending the Asia CCA Forum. Each participant has a different interpretation and understanding of what is going on in adaptation. With Social Network Analysis, we can develop a holistic picture of actual relationships and flows among people and organizations, so that we can more effectively collaborate, learn and act. Feel free to drop by to talk to us about preliminary results, or to discuss using data from this survey.

Description

This marketplace booth will showcase the work Save the Children undertakes to put children at the centre of climate change adaptation. While children in developing countries have contributed least to climate change, they will be the worst affected..

Save the Children places children at the heart of climate change education and adaptation planning to ensure that the specific risks faced by children (which are different to those faced by adults) are recognised and addressed.Children are not passive recipients of climate aid, nor are they uniformly victims. Despite their vulnerability, children are drivers of change in their communities. They can, and do, manage climate risks and help their communities to better understand climate risks and locally-relevant adaptation actions.

BOOTH NO: 21 - Adaptive Social Protection - an integrated approach towards vulnerability reduction 

Lead Organisation/Focal Point

Susanne Schirmer
Institute of Development Studies (IDS)
Tel: 44 1273 915801

Email: s.schirmer@ids.ac.uk

Description

Poor and vulnerable people in developing countries are facing ever greater and deeper shocks and stresses to their livelihoods. These include those of a global nature, such as the 2007 financial crisis, as well as more localised ones, for example floods and droughts. All make it increasingly difficult for poor people's usual coping and risk-management strategies to prove effective in protecting their livelihoods - with often dire implications for their wellbeing. Efforts to reduce the impacts of these shocks and stresses, and reduce vulnerability for at-risk communities, have largely focused on one of three main types of interventions: social protection, disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation - with little cross-fertilisation between the three.

Adaptive social protection (ASP) is a new, integrated approach to reduce vulnerability of the poor in developing countries. It is premised on:

  • an understanding of the interlinked nature of the shocks and stresses that poor rural and urban people face today, and
  • the potential synergies to be gained in moving away from single stranded approaches to risk and vulnerability reduction.

The Adaptive Social Protection in the Context of Agriculture and Food Security programme (ASP Programme) is a UK Department for International Development (DFID) funded programme exploring the benefits of an interlinked approach to risk reduction and resilience building in rural areas of developing countries. It is taking into account evidence from social protection, climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction approaches from field studies in South Asia and East Africa.

The market place provides an opportunity to showcase the ASP approach and connect with interested researchers, practitioners and policy makers during the conference.

BOOTH NO: 22 - Mobilising climate change knowledge: Institute of Development Studies 

Lead Organisation/Focal Point

Fatema Rajabali
Institute of Development Studies (IDS)
Tel: +44 7895 702 576

Email: f.rajabali@ids.ac.uk

Description

Knowledge matters and how it is shared shapes the decisions, policies and actions that can improve the lives of people living in poverty. However, turning knowledge into action is complex, political and iterative. Too often development research falls short of its potential to improve the lives of people and remains unused outside of academic communities. Intermediaries and knowledge brokers, like IDS Knowledge Services, who mediate between communities, researchers, practitioners and decision makers are central to addressing this challenge. Areas of our work include:

Developing open platforms, approaches and standards for sharing climate adaptation and development knowledge globally

Facilitating communities of practice and networks to promote exchange and knowledge sharing between climate adaptation stakeholders

Opening up access and presenting a diverse view of the latest research, debates and practice in climate adaptation arena

Stimulating demand for research knowledge by climate change actors in policy and practice

Strenghtening the capacity of the emerging intermediary sector, particularly in developing countries, to share, learn and take action together.

Email: Dbours@pactworld.org 

Description

SEA Change is a Southeast Asia community of practice (CoP) for monitoring and evaluation of climate change interventions, having formed last October with funding from the Rockefeller Foundation and technical and logistical support from Pact.
Climate change is a real challenge globally and scientists, policy makers, and practitioners across government, private sector and the not-for-profit sectors are struggling to find effective ways to adapt to the increasingly disruptive effects of changes to ecosystems and livelihoods of people. Without concerted and focused action, many of the development gains made in alleviating poverty will be wiped out. Learning how to design, implement and scale up more effective interventions to address the effects of climate change requires advances in approaches to capture learning, monitoring progress and evaluating achievements.

In a series of online exchanges, the SEA Change CoP continues building momentum to meet the challenges found in the confluence of M&E and climate change.  The synergy resulting from convening M&E and climate change practitioners is structured to encourage advancing tools, approaches, frameworks and methodologies that are shared by members across the region and a few from across the globe.  Currently SEA Change CoP members communicate through regular weekly emails, discussion forums hosted in the web-based platform, calendar of events and webinars (online seminars).  These activities keep members connected to valuable resources that inform, improve and seeds innovation in monitoring and evaluation of the impacts of various climate change programs.  An underlying goal of SEA Change is to explore the means by which its members can better understand which practices ultimately should be scaled up and adapted more widely within the region, across the region and even globally.  Through a collection of evidenced-based lessons learned, CoP members also hope to influence climate change adaptation and mitigation policy

Email: johannes.nilsson@forumsyd.org

Description

As it has become more evident that global warming is posing an increasing challenge to development, climate change capacity is becoming a high priority both locally and internationally. Cambodia is ranked as one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change in the region regardless of the number of natural hazards that occurs a matter of having a low adaptive capacity to deal with climate related hazards and impacts. Until recently much of Cambodian civil society had little or no understanding of climate change issues, and there was limited knowledge available on the experiences and needs of Cambodian people in a climate change context. As a response to this limited capacity and the lack of methods and tools readily available in Cambodia, Cord, DanChurch Aid/Christian Aid (DCA/CA) and Forum Syd funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) developed the Joint Climate Change Initiative (JCCI) for local Cambodian non-governmental organisations with the aim to build their capacity and incorporate climate change interventions within their programmes.
