Measuring Household Resilience Project in Zambia

The results of the assessment will help in (a) understanding the degree to which the planned interventions of Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPRC) projects enhance household climate resilience in the communities vulnerable to climate risks; and (b) exploring methodologies to quantitatively measure household climate resilience, which can be used to inform a better design of future PPCR and other projects.

Armenia Forest

Armenia forestry-poverty-energy linkages

Tanzania Urban Resilience Program (TURP)

Dar es Salaam is one of the fastest growing cities in Sub-Saharan Africa. Much of the urban growth is unplanned, leading to over-crowding and high pressure on public services and drainage systems. The city is frequently affected by floods, leading to high costs in terms of physical loss, as well as loss of life. Due to climate change, the situation is becoming more urgent as the population is increasingly exposed and vulnerable to frequent floods.
