Climate Resilience

Strengthening adaptation and resilience protects the lives and livelihoods of the most vulnerable communities

PILOT PROGRAM FOR CLIMATE RESILIENCE

MANAGING CURRENT & FUTURE IMPACTS

The $1.2 billion Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) supports developing countries and regions in building their adaptation and resilience to the impacts of climate change. First, the PPCR assists governments in integrating climate resilience into strategic development planning across sectors and stakeholder groups. Second, it provides concessional and grant funding to put the plans into action and pilot innovative public and private sector solutions.

The PPCR invests in some of the world’s most vulnerable countries. At the frontline of climate change are small island developing states (SIDS). The PPCR supported SIDS, with $250 million for nine Caribbean and Pacific island nations, 20 percent of PPCR resources. PPCR also invested more than $200 million for most vulnerable countries to upgrade climate data and services for climate-smart project design.

 

CLIMATE-PROOFING ALOTAU WHARF

The Alotau provincial wharf is a critical transportation and trade link for over 175,000 people on the outer islands of Papua New Guinea. Climate-smart upgrades aim to expand economic opportunities for both men and women, deepen support for disaster relief, and accommodate anticipated sea level rise.

Expected Results Highlights

40.5 MILLION PEOPLE

Expect to benefit from enhanced climate resilience delivered by 55 PPCR projects being implemented in 17 countries—about the entire population of Uganda
