Building Capacity on Climate Change Adaptation in Coastal Areas of Pakistan

Building Capacity on Climate Change Adaptation in Coastal Areas of Pakistan (CCAP) project (2011-2015) funded by the European Commission (EC) intends to mitigate the climate change risks faced by vulnerable communities in coastal areas of Sindh (Keti Bunder and Kharo Chan, Thatta District) and Balochistan (Jiwani, Gwadar District) through the implementation of interventions related to adaptation and capacity building.

The project also aims to promote integrated water resource management and river basin management. The project focuses on supporting governance mechanisms to help them become more responsive and robust when addressing impacts from climate variability and change.

Overall Objective (2025)

“By 2025, coastal areas in Pakistan and neighbouring regions [will] have climate resilient ecosystems to support the livelihoods / lives of coastal communities”

Specific Objective (2015)

“By 2015, government and community climate adaptation capacity is increased and water governance strengthened, to improve climate resilience of Indus Delta ecosystem processes on which coastal communities depend, supported by regional and transboundary cooperation on adaptation in river deltas”
