Baseline: No comprehensive picture of programs and expenditures on climate change and climate change adaptation across agencies, lack of data for decision-making, unclear alignment between policy priorities and budgeting.
CC Annual Report , including public expenditure review , by the end of Year 1.
Subsequent Annual Reports for Years 2-5
Target: A comprehensive picture of programs and expenditures on climate change and climate change adaptation across agencies.
Baseline: CCA issues are not mentioned explicitly in national policies and laws or in district and jamoat-level development plans; agencies in climate-sensitive sectors do not have a mandate to address CCA and cannot request funding for CCA activities.
CCA mainstreamed into the Poverty Reduction Strategy
CCA mainstreamed into the National Development Strategy
Legislative calendar developed
CCA mainstreamed into key sectoral legislation
Target: CCA is mainstreamed into national strategies and laws; agencies in climate-sensitive sectors have a mandate to work on CCA issues
#4: A National Program to Raise Awareness on CC
Baseline: No comprehensive ongoing effort to raise awareness on climate change that reflects key messages and uses a media plan.
Key messages developed and endorsed
Media plan in place for awareness-raising campaign
Target: Public awareness of climate change, climate change adaptation, and adaptive measures increases. Media coverage increases and focuses on key messages developed under the campaign.
#5: Improving Secondary and Post-Secondary Climate Change Education
Baseline: Climate change issues are almost never addressed in secondary and post-secondary institutions. There is a lack of qualified experts to conduct applied research that is important to climate change adaptation.
Updated Law on Environmental Education
Introduction of Climate Change specialization into at least one university
Introduction of Climate Change modules into all universities
Long-term strategy for educating CC researchers
Target: Secondary/post-secondary students attain a working understanding of climate change and climate change adaptation. Post-secondary students have the option of studying climate sciences and climate change. Tajikistan has a strategy for providing post-graduate training to its climate researchers and specialists.
Baseline: Capacity to understand adaptation issues and design, implement, and monitor adaptation projects is very low at the national, regional, and local level apart from a few isolated examples. Government agencies lack properly trained staff, community members lack adaptive skills, and there is a lack of experience regarding locally-appropriate adaptive measures.
Independent small grants program operational
Capacity development program implemented
Target: Government agencies in climate-sensitive sectors demonstrate the use of CCA knowledge in their work, community members demonstrate adaptive skills, and locally-appropriate adaptive measures have been tested and replicated in each of the country’s four regions.
