Adaptation to climate change and building resilience among ecosystems and peoples to respond to climate variability and hazard threats are relatively new concepts. For this reason, networks for sharing experiences and ideas, especially between delta areas, will have a fundamental role in helping to address adaptation within specific ecosystems or sites. As well as regional collaboration, facilitating support from multi-lateral and bilateral donor agencies is crucial to enable on-going implementation climate change actions and improved governance, especially of water resources.
In January 2011, WWF Pakistan started a 5 year project with funds from the European Union’s ‘Environment and Natural Resource Thematic Program’ budget line (ENRTP). The project title is “Building Capacity on Climate Change Adaptation in Coastal Areas of Pakistan (CCAP)”.
