  4. 4. 1. Colombian experience on adaptation: development of the National Climate Change Adaptation Plan. NCCAP  Population: 46.5million  GDP per capita: US$ 7,104  GDP Growth Rate (2008-2012): 4%  Poverty: 27% (MPI) Source: DANE, DNP, WB Indicators, 2012

NCCAP  Located in the Tropical Zone – Climate is influenced by ITCZ  Two coasts with different growth models and priorities  Biogeographic diversity:  Andes mountain chain reaching 5750 m.a.s.l.  314 types of ecosystems
  6. 6. 1. Colombian experience on adaptation: development of the National Climate Change Adaptation Plan. NCCAP At the start of the current government period (2010-2014) four climate change strategies were ongoing  National Climate Change Adaptation Plan: governmental entities  Colombian Low Carbon Development Strategy: 9 agencies + Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development  National Strategy for Reduced Emissions form Deforestation and Forest Degradation: Forest Carbon Partnership Facility + Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development  Financial Protection Strategy from Disaster: WB + Ministry of Economy and Public Credit

Agreement upon the need to improve knowledge about risks related to climate variability and climate change. Conceptual and regulation frameworks identified for both. Focus on ecosystem services as a means of strengthen territorial resilience. 90% Disasters asociated with hydrometeorological events (1998-2011)

  16. 16. DRM  CCA Challenge Core issues Solution Varying local planning capacities Spreading of planning know-how at subnational levels • Spreading of planning tools • Supporting formulation • Identifying finance sources Apparently overlapping functions Diversity of government entities with crosscutting missions. E.g. Environmental Regional Authorities – Risk Management Committees Defining specific tasks under Climate Change Adaptation frameworks Weak environmental governance – water management Weak enforcement • Improving water monitoring and analysis • Improving key messages for policymakers (excess and default) Concentration in urban areas 70% of Colombians live in urban areas  Food, water and energy sources, are located on rural areas Regional – more than urban – adaptation scopes Competition with other sectoral priorities Resources invested on previously set targets Defining a shared agenda between DRM and CCA 2.2. Challenges encountered in aligning the two agendas
  17. 17. 2.3. Priorities for achieving closer integration Afford continuity of financial and human resources. Enhance climate change management capacities on sectorial and territorial planning instances. Define improvement of decision making under climate uncertainty. While as a developing country our decision makers demand quick and visible outcomes. Mainstream conceptual clarity on policy making. Identify risk reduction priorities and commit resources through the National Development Plan (2014-2018). Setting strategies for productive sectors (economic activities) to improve efficient water and energy use. DRM  CCA
  18. 18. ① Renew building technologies for new public infrastructure – adapted infrastructure ② Quantification of ecosystem services (parallel to environmental accounts) ③ Approval of nationally relevant projects subject to ecosystem services accountability ④ Mainstream climate varability and climate change related risks into land use regulation ⑤ Governance: community + ecosystem based adaptation pilots and programmes (follow- up). ⑥ Define private sector of risk-share ⑦ Assess CV and CC related risks 3. Role of development co-operation
