1 Presentation made at: The Stakeholder Workshop Hotel Minerva Grand, Hyderabad, October 25, 2008 Key Features of the MEDIUM SIZED PROJECT proposed for the funding of The Global Environment Facility (GEF) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Project Formulation Mission Commissioned by Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)

2 Scheme of Presentation Project Title Purpose of the Workshop Baseline Scenario The GEF Alternative Conformity with GEF Criteria Institutional Arrangements Provisional Work Plan Project Costs

3 Project Title Reversing Environmental Degradation and Rural Poverty through Adaptation to Climate Change in Drought Stricken Areas in Southern India: A Hydrological Unit Pilot Project Approach

4 Baseline Scenario Scientific confirmation of climate change impact on agriculture and allied sectors Communities in drought prone areas the most vulnerable Proven capacities of the community to self- regulate Demonstrated in case of groundwater management through APFAMGS Project Experiences from other NEX projects of FAO (AMEF and APWAM) relevant to climate change adaptation

5 The GEF Alternative Broadening the agenda of CBOs to climate change adaptation Project Goal: Communities in pilot Hydrological Units (HUs) prepared to face consequences of climate change for sustained livelihoods Overall Objective: Contribute to establishing a knowledge base for large-scale intervention on climate change

6 The GEF Alternative Expected Outcomes: Communities in pilot HUs understand implications of climate change on livelihood systems Communities in pilot HUs understand implications of climate change on livelihood systems Communities in pilot HUs have knowledge and skills of addressing broader issues of climate change Communities in pilot HUs have knowledge and skills of addressing broader issues of climate change Mechanisms established to sustain livelihoods in view of climate change Mechanisms established to sustain livelihoods in view of climate change

7 The GEF Alternative Outputs of Outcome 1: Understanding of climate change at HU level documented and bench-marked Understanding of climate change at HU level documented and bench-marked HU level understanding of climate change contextualized with global level knowledge HU level understanding of climate change contextualized with global level knowledge Awareness generated on climate change impact on livelihoods Awareness generated on climate change impact on livelihoods

8 The GEF Alternative Outputs of Outcome 2: Critical issues related to climate change and livelihoods, at HU level, identified Critical issues related to climate change and livelihoods, at HU level, identified Project Staff oriented on issues of climate change Project Staff oriented on issues of climate change Community Resource Persons (CRP) oriented on issues of climate change Community Resource Persons (CRP) oriented on issues of climate change Climate Change Schools (CCS) conducted Climate Change Schools (CCS) conducted

9 The GEF Alternative Outputs of Outcome 3: CBOs oriented on climate change and livelihood issues CBOs oriented on climate change and livelihood issues Necessary arrangements made to sustain CBOs Necessary arrangements made to sustain CBOs Community Action initiated on climate change adaptation on HU level Community Action initiated on climate change adaptation on HU level Learning from the project disseminated at local, national and global level Learning from the project disseminated at local, national and global level

10 The GEF Alternative Sustainability and Replicability CBOs registered CBOs registered Proven self-governance capacity Proven self-governance capacity Willingness to make informed decisions Willingness to make informed decisions Proven fund-raising Capacity Proven fund-raising Capacity Proven replicability of the knowledge based intervention Proven replicability of the knowledge based intervention Replicable anywhere in the world Replicable anywhere in the world Learning dissemination, at local, national and global level, is in built in the project design Learning dissemination, at local, national and global level, is in built in the project design

11 Conformity with GEF Criteria Focal Area: Climate Change Strategic long term objective 8 – to support pilot demonstration projects for adaptation to climate change.

12 Conformity with GEF Criteria Incremental Benefits: Government investments for climate change adaptation is more in terms of infrastructure and equipment Government investments for climate change adaptation is more in terms of infrastructure and equipment Preparing communities with knowledge and skills to adapt to climate change is the incremental benefits Preparing communities with knowledge and skills to adapt to climate change is the incremental benefits Global Environmental Benefits: An alternative approach to climate change adaptation replicable at global level An alternative approach to climate change adaptation replicable at global level Increased Carbon sequestration Increased Carbon sequestration

13 Conformity with GEF Criteria GEF Operational Focal Point in India: Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) endorsed the PIF Country Partnership Program: India Sustainable Land and Eco-system Management (SLEM) GEF Implementation Agency: Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Government of Andhra Pradesh (GoAP) endorsed the PIF Executing Agency: Bharathi Integrated Rural Development Society (BIRDS)
