The “Building Capacity on Climate Change Adaptation in the Coastal Areas of Pakistan”(CCAP) is a WWF-P project, jointly administered with partners LEAD-Pakistan and WWF-K, and with associates in India, Bangladesh and Iran who help cover Dasht and Sundarbans deltas besides the Indus.We are grateful to consultants and institutions whose work we commissioned and oversaw over the course of 2011-2012. The findings of their studies are synthesized in this report and we are grateful to them for participating wholeheartedly in path correction meetings and addressing reviewer comments. WWF Network colleagues and others who lent their expertise to the development of methodology – and also collaborated in fieldwork – are thanked by name in this synthesis report.
We would also like to thank stakeholders who participated in the Synthesis Report consultative provincial level consultative workshop in Karachi on 29 December 2012.
Further, we appreciate organisations such as SDPI, IUCN, UNDP, among others who took out the time to fill out a survey monkey questionnaire.
We would also like to thank Ms. Zubaida Birwani from Trust for Conservation of Coastal Resources (TCCR) for contributing PRK 85,000 for the construction of a fresh water pond at village Qadir Baksh Baloch, Kharo Chan. We would like to take this opportunity to invite other stakeholders to contribute towards CCAP's interventions.
