Component 1: Addressing climate change impacts on key infrastructure and settlements.
This outcome is focused on climate change threats and combined local impacts of increased flooding due to
increased precipitation and coastal and infrastructure erosion due to increased tidal activity and
storm surges. Activities in Component 1 are grouped together due to their common focus on physical
("hard") coastal protection and infrastructure, and because the impact of activities is expected
to be felt immediately, and in the immediate vicinity of actions.
Outcome: The adverse impacts of Sea Level Rise and floods on coastal infrastructure and settlements are reduced through the following activities:
- Rehabilitate coastal protection facilities to protect settlements economic and cultural infrastructure
- Cleaning up of the drainage channels, rehabilitation of storm drains
Component 2: Ecosystem-based Integrated Coastal Area Management
This component comprises a set of concrete environmental rehabilitation measures designed to enhance
ecological resilience and the efficiency of infrastructure rehabilitation works. It is to be implemented
as a complement to activities in Component 1, in order to form a comprehensive package of protection
from climate change impacts in coastal regions.
Outcome: Coastal ecosystems are rehabilitated and ICAM is implemented though the following activities:
- Coastal ecosystem rehabilitation for climate resilience through the implementation of a Green Jobs program
Component 3: Knowledge, coastal monitoring and policy linkages
This project is intended to serve as a strong example of ‘stage 2’ adaptation implementation in the
country and in the region. In this regard, the project will first build on existing and available knowledge,
scientific evidence and technical studies in order to ensure the implementation of state-of-the-art
technologies and approaches to adaptation. This component builds on what currently exists in the
country, as well as on approaches and methods that will be implemented through this project,
so as to generate policy-relevant knowledge.
Outcome: Knowledge of climate impacts and adaptation is increased (through the following activities):
- Coastal monitoring and assessment
- Policy linkages
