Panama: Integration of Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Measures in the Management of Natural Resources in Four Priority Watersheds of Panama
The overall aim of the programme is to build the capacity to adapt to, and mitigate climate change in order to contribute to environmental sustainability and poverty reduction in four priority watersheds in Panama. This will be achieved through the development of an Adaptation and Mitigation Strategy and a Pilot Climate Monitoring System, improvement of local management of land and water resources, and increased access to sources of funding.
The Outcomes and Outputs of this Joint Programme are:
Outcome 1: An Integrated Adaptation and Mitigation Management Strategy and a pilot Climate Monitoring System developed to ensure that adaptation and mitigation issues are taken into account when making development decisions at national level
Outcome 2: Improved local management of natural resources (water and soil) to increase the ability to adapt to climate change and mitigate its effects
Outcome 3: Access to increased levels of funding to support sustainable management activities for natural resources aimed at adapting to climate change and mitigating its effects
In this programme FAO is mainly involved in the implementation of Outputs 2.3., 3.1., and 3.2.
