  2. 2. SUMMARY REPORT Trainings on climate change and crosscutting areas 16-24 November 2011, State Administration for Hydrometeorology, Dushanbe 1. Background: The project on capacity assessment and raising awareness on climate change in Tajikistan is the UNDP led task for A1 and A3 components of the PPCR (Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience) Phase 1 initiative. The primary objectives of the project is to (i) produce an assessment of Tajikistan’s institutional, technical and human capacity to mainstream climate change considerations in key policy areas, with particular focus on the requirements for taking forward the SPRC; and (ii) conduct an initial awareness raising campaign aimed at building capacity on climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation. Taking into account the importance of the objectives, UNDP in close cooperation with the PPCR Secretariat and State Administration for Hydrometeorology conducted a series of one-day trainings on climate change raising awareness in Tajikistan. The crosscutting topics for the trainings were encountered during the capacity and awareness assessment exercise, and included journalism, gender, poverty alleviation, environmental policy and regional planning. The main goal of the trainings was to strengthen the basic capacity and awareness of the target group on climate change in general and define the ways of integrating climate change adaptation to the crosscutting areas. The modules of the trainings included (i) concept of global warming and climate change, (ii) vulnerability to climate change, (iii) climate change impacts, (iv) adaptation to climate change impacts, and (v) mainstreaming of climate change in crosscutting areas. Below is the list of trainings and dates: Date Training 16 November Climate change and media 17 November Climate change and gender 18 November Climate change and poverty alleviation 22 November Climate change and policy 24 November Climate change and regional planning 2. Trainers: The training modules were prepared by the UNDP International experts and adjusted/adapted by the local experts to the national circumstances (i.e. live impacts, adaptation practices and examples from the Tajikistan case studies and analysis). The trainers were selected out of the leading national experts dealing with climate change and crosscutting areas in Tajikistan. In particular, the climate change trainers were from the Committee for environmental protection under the GoT, International Fund for Saving the Aral Sea (Tajik Branch). In fact, these representatives have a well acknowledged experience and capacity to work on climate change in Tajikistan.

  3. 3. and Second National Communication under the UNFCCC, while Mr. Homidov played a key role in preparing the section on climate change impacts and vulnerabilities. He is the author of multiple articles dedicated to melting of regional glaciers in the face of global warming. The trainers that led the sessions on crosscutting areas (mass media, poverty, gender, policy and regional planning) were the national experts from the local media, NGOs, Institute of strategic research, Parliament. 3. Participants: In total, 132 participants attended the trainings. This number included 51 representatives from the governmental agencies, while the rest were from the national and international NGOs and media. On the other hand, the number of participants, who were from the districts and oblasts (central part and south part of the country) comprised 29 people out of the total amount. The general gender ratio in the trainings was 63 females/69 males. 4. Training approach: The leading approach of the trainings was that each lection session should be followed by the group work, where participants can develop their skills first in defining the district/area/oblast/jamoat they are familiar with, then explore climate change impacts and vulnerable sectors and try to provide adaptation measures, integrating them into planning. On the same hand, some of the participants were mature enough to provide adaptation measures that are urgently required for the nearest future (3-5 year period) and long-term future (5 and more years). 5. Overview of the training findings: The impacts that were commonly identified by all participants were climate-induced floods and droughts. As the consequences, the trainees tried to interlink these impacts with other socio-economic consequences as decrease in food production or food insecurity, and, therefore, increase of market prices and migration, life safety and human health (especially from the water-borne diseases), decline in economic development (less water – less hydropower production) and flourishing of poverty. The most prone areas/districts to climate-induced floods and droughts were Southern (Kulyab region, Nurek), Central (Hissar, Vakhdat, Dushanbe) and Northern Tajikistan (Kuhistoni Matcha). As a result, the agricultural sector declines heavily. It witnesses desertification of the pasture lands and frequent death of the livestock. The commonly identified adaptation measures included the clearance of the drainage systems, maintenance of the irrigation network, reforestation, construction of water reservoirs and water tanks, use of the drought and water-resistant crops, diversification of the crop production sector, set-up of the food storage places, sustainable use of the pastures, integrated approach in water resources management, establishment of the Water User Associations (WUAs) in areas that lack them, etc. As the measures that support integration of the adaptation to planning and policy, the participants highlighted the need to incorporate climate change adaptation to the national development strategies, including the Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS-4) with a clear reflection of climate indicators1. At the community level, the participants raised a need to include climate change adaptation practices into rural 1 Preparation of the matrix on cc indicators and its inclusion to the document/planPhase I: Technical assistance on institutional capacity assessment and awareness-raising on climate change in Tajikistan PILOT PROGRAMME FOR CLIMATE RESILIENCE (PPCR)

At the same time, awareness raising and education policy on climate change as well as the coordination of the activities and collaboration with governmental and non-governmental agencies and communities was announced as a priority. The participants coming from the districts were particularly mentioning the “abrupt” impacts of climate change, especially highlighting cold weather extremes that were observed in early November 20113. Even though the State Administration for Hydrometeorology forecasted the extreme weather conditions, many people were not ready for them and did not harvest the crops beforehand, leaving them frozen on the fields. Therefore, one of the adaptation measures supported by most of participants was the access to meteorological forecast information. The need for self-implementation of the small scale projects addressing climate change through education and awareness raising initiatives (e.g. set-up/ maintenance of the information centres in the districts with CC publications, establishment of the press-centres or journalism network with a particular focus on climate change4, study tours to the districts that are already in progress with adaptive practices), capacity building (trainings or inclusion of the communities/ journalists to the field trips), and streaming small funds for currently implemented initiatives on natural disasters prevention or agricultural development. 6. Impacts on the participants: Overall rating that participants gave for the trainings was “very successful”. 56 fully filled-in evaluation forms were received and proved the importance of these trainings. The participants were highly satisfied by the approach of the training, distributed materials and handouts. In particular they particularly acknowledged the professionalism of the involved trainers and the way they delivered the trainings. Among the common recommendations to improve the trainings in the future, were (i) to conduct the trainings and develop module handouts in Tajik; (ii) to cover districts and regions in particular; (iii) involve mass media in order to broaden the scope of the mass population through them; (iv) one-day training is not enough to cover all the related topics on cc crosscutting issues; (v) practical works should be assigned to the attendees right after the training to check the acquired knowledge. 22 The first attempt to include environmental indicators in the Jamoat Development Plan was done in some districts of the Sughd region within the UNDP project on Poverty and Environment Initiative 3 Early November 2011 in Tajikistan witnessed the snowfall and abrupt decrease in air temperature (not obvious for Tajikistan in this time period) that caused economic damage to most of the dekhan farms. 4 The best practice can be transferred from the climate change network with the involvement of NOGs and other stakeholders.Phase I: Technical assistance on institutional capacity assessment and awareness-raising on climate change in Tajikistan PILOT PROGRAMME FOR CLIMATE RESILIENCE (PPCR)
