It will translate by 4 national thematic workshops. o Three national thematic workshops: - Palestine (February 2014) - Tunisia (May/June 2014) - Lebanon (July 2014) Activity A3.1.3: Adaptation plan development This activity will focuses on the development and/or the improvement of the main adaptation strategies and plans as well as building the capacity to finance adaptation strategies and plans, through pilot measures and learning-by-doing. o Startup of national activities:Algeria (June 2014) / Lebanon (March 2014) / Palestine (October 2013) / Tunisia (October 2013)
  15. 15. Location Framework Degree of priority Costs of impacts (including most affected groups) Key Components Algeria – Ministry of Agriculture & Rural Development/DGF Purpose: Handling forest fire climate risks through proactive mitigation measures and preparedness plans. Recommended by:  The Algerian National Climate Plan (validation in 2013).  The National Adaptation to CC Action Plan (PNA-ACC, 2003) - direct impacts on forest resources caused to forest fires - indirect impacts: reduction in the contribution of the forest to the economic activities of rural people using forest resources  Component 1: start a dialogue with all institutions involved  Component 2: coordinate with the partners the elaboration of study  Component 3: Carry out a technical approval process with the Institutions involved in the forest fires management.
  16. 16.  Two national workshops well as meetings: start a dialogue and carry out a technical approval process Contribution  study that will provide i) technical options for the of the project implementation of this SIAPCC-Forest and ii) definition of a ENPI South timely and effective Fire Forest Index Clima  Initiate and sustain a twinning process with similar programs and operational system of European countries  Ministries of Environment, Agriculture Key partners  Civil Protection, stakeholders on the field, University …  Meteorological department and other data providers knowledge on current mechanism for management of forest fires is improved and shortcomings are identified Deliverables Basis and technical options for setting up an S I A P C C - F o r e t are identified Risks Risk &  Difficulty of gathering all the partners and finding a leadership Opportunities Opportunities  This initiative can be replicated
  17. 17. Location Beirut urban area as well as a rural area (to be identified)/Lebanon gradual and unpredictable emergence of extreme weather/water (floods, ..) Degree of priority Topography of Lebanon is rugged that provides devastating effects Costs of impacts in rural areas: the poorest farmers who are poorly resilient to (including most the hazards of climate affected groups) in urban areas: people in poor neighborhoods  Component 1: start a dialogue with all institutions as well as stakeholders  Component 2: Coordinate with the partners the elaboration Key Components of study  Component 3: communication activities around climate risks and the best way to start the operationalization of the system
  18. 18. Contribution  Two national workshops well as meetings: start a dialogue and of the project carry out a technical approval process ENPI South  study that will provide technical options for developing and Clima setting up this early warning system.  Ministries of Environment, Agriculture Key partners  Beirut Municipality & Others stakeholders involved  Meteorological department and other data providers knowledge of climate risk from flooding is improved Basis for setting up an IEWACS are identified Deliverables Partners are more aware of the risks climate risks related to floods and the opportunity for an IEWACS Risks Risk &  Difficulty of gathering all the partners and finding a leadership Opportunities Opportunities  attractive idea and funding opportunities are numerous,
  19. 19. Location The irrigated area of Bssissi/Gabes region (to be confirmed) A Recommendation of the national strategy for adaptation of agriculture and ecosystems to CC Degree of priority A pilot initiative has shown that weather information brings a significant added value in farming (water, pesticide, .) - increased evapotranspiration inducing an increase in water needs Most signifiant - overexploitation of groundwater increasing the cost of consequences pumping charged to the farmer - New weather conditions favorable to the emergence of diseases The purpose is to provide climatological information to farmers, thereby increasing their resilience to CC by: Definition of the Using groundwater resources in an effective manner adaptation Managing the pesticide treatments in a rational manner measure/inputs Better field works planning and protection of the production.
  20. 20.  Component 1: Establish a thorough dialogue with farmers,  Component 2: Mobilize the expertise and support to accompany Key farmers Components  Component 3: Develop a socio-economic study  Component 4: A communication strategy Farmers, and farmer’s organizations Key partners Local policy makers & Agriculture local Division National Meteorological Institute (INM) A socio-economic study showing that:  The groundwater resources (scarce resource) are used more efficiently Deliverables  Electric power for pumping is used more efficiently  Improved farmers resilience through a farmers more aware by the rational and sustainable management of their activity Risks Risk &  Gathering and interesting farmers and finding a leadership Opportunities Opportunities  This initiative can be replicated
  21. 21.  Synergy with the other components  Benefit from opportunities for collaboration in adaptation to CC at the regional level  Benefit from the opportunities created by the changes in the region (a mobilized civil society, a growing interest for vulnerable populations)  A willingness expressed by all partners to promote implementation of concrete adaptation measures to CC  Mainstreaming adaptation to CC in the development process 21

  25. 25. Appraisal of the vulnerability assessment Focus Rating Status Rapid identification of vulnerability at the national level exists 4 Done 4 Done but differences exist among sectors Exchange of data is the main gap There are no comprehensive assessment The rapid identification of sectoral vulnerability needs to be updated, both regarding data and tools used. Rapid assessments of the vulnerability at the sectoral level exist Comprehensive assessments of vulnerability at the sectoral level exist 2,5 Comments
  26. 26. Assessment of the adaptation to climate change Focus National vision for adaptation to CC National strategy/programme /plan for adaptation to CC through addressing adverse effects and increase climate resilience Sectoral strategies for adaptation to CC or increase resilience Rating Status Comments This vision is characterized by a territorial approach 4,5 Relatively clear vision for adaptation to CC 3,5 National strategy for CC is under development. Some classical adaptation to CC measures need to be further developed and more argued First dialogue in the framework of the National plan of action against global warming (2009) No sectoral strategies of adaptation to CC; however, Some interesting initiatives Some interesting initiatives of mainstreaming CC but no structured and systematic methodological approach on this issue No rapid assessment of adaptation to CC costing Some sectoral development strategy includes CC issue Limited level of awareness about adverse effects of CC in Morocco as well a lack of mainstreaming tool 3,5 CC Mainstreaming / adaptation to CC in the strategic development planning process 3 Costing of adaptation to climate change 1,5 Still unknown issue
  27. 27. Assessment of Access to adaptation to climate change financing Focus Are stakeholders informed about funding for adaptation to CC? Are there any CC adaptation projects clearly identified? Rating 2 4 Are these CC adaptation projects defined 3 according to the required format? Do national capacities allow formulation of project document, according to the formats required by donors? 2 Status Comments Except partners from MinEMWE and ADA no other partner is informed Some adaptation projects have been identified and implemented and others are under development Adaptation projects executed were defined with partners (GTZ, AFD and UNDP) and there are no on-going projects with funding allocated to adaptation under the UNFCCC and the GEF Absence of national capacities on this issue Lack of skills & capacity in the field ADA is an Executive Agency of the FA that must be supported
  28. 28. Assessment of level of awareness of stakeholders to adaptation to CC Focus Rating Status Level of awareness of stakeholders to environmental challenges as well as CC/adaptation to CC. 3 Various degree of involvement of partners in the national dialogue Level of awareness of Civil Society/NGO to environmental challenges as well as CC/adaptation to CC . 4 Comments Coordination should be improved to overcome administrative barriers to reach all partners Highly diversified with good level of awareness Do Stakeholders have a good understanding of adaptation to 3 CC? Limited to partners from MinEMWE, the water department and the ADA and some national resource persons Resource persons are not really integrated into the national dialogue Does civil society have a good understanding of adaptation to 4 CC? A higher level of understanding Is not considered as a full partner in dialogue
