Millennium Development Goals (MDG) Achievement Fund
Egypt: Climate Change Risk Management in Egypt
The aim of the proposed joint programme is to help Egypt align its climate risk management and human development efforts in pursuing the achievement of MDGs in the face of climate change and the predicted serious threats to the country. In this context, the project will serve to reduce poverty and mitigate risk by combining mitigation and adaptation under one integrated Climate Risk Management (CRM) banner. The joint programme will build awareness and capacity of key decision makers and development actors to support the systematic integration of climate change as a new variable in key policy, regulatory, institutional and operational frameworks and implement pilot projects.
The Outcomes and Outputs of this Joint Programme are:
Outcome 1: Mainstreaming greenhouse gases mitigation and Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) into national policy and expanding access to finance frameworks
Outcome 2: Enhanced capacity to adapt to Climate Change
In this programme FAO is mainly involved in the implementation of Outputs 2.1., and 2.2.
