    The fisheries and aquaculture sector in national adaptation programmes of action: importance, vulnerabilities and priorities. 2011

    The main purpose of this review is to support least-developed countries (LDC), development partners and donors in planning and implementing climate change adaptation actions for the fisheries and aquaculture sector. In particular, it is aimed at the LDCs eligible for support from the Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF) (operated by the Global Environment Facility [GEF]), the GEF and its Agencies and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) LDC Expert Group (LEG). This desk study analyses the existing national adaptation programmes of action (NAPAs) of LDCs to identify why and in what ways the sector has been identified as needing priority adaptation action and how this prioritization has transferred into actual projects through the LDCF. The report: familiarizes fisheries and aquaculture decision-makers in LDCs with the NAPA process and the means for NAPA implementation; reviews country priorities vis-à-vis the fisheries and aquaculture sector; and provides those in the climate change arena with an understanding of the particular needs and vulnerabilities of the sector. The ultimate goal of the circular is to promote the inclusion of a traditionally under-represented but potentially highly vulnerable sector in the planning and implementation of climate change adaptation strategies.

    Terminal evaluation of the project “Reducing vulnerability and increasing adaptive capacity to respond to impacts of climate change and variability for sustainable livelihoods in agriculture sector in Nepal”
    Project code: GCP/NEP/070/LDF GEF ID: 5111

    The project’s goal was to support Nepal’s agriculture sector to become climate resilient by promoting urgent and immediate adaptation measures and integration of adaptation priorities outlined in the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) into agriculture sectorial policies, plans, programmes and local actions. The final evaluation found that the relevant institutional structures in Nepal are now technically capable of incorporating climate change adaptation in agriculture sector decision-making. However, project districts could not benefit from strengthened staff capacity due to scattering of institutional memory caused by staff transfers and relocation in federal, provincial and local governments. Evidence of climate change adaptation related awareness raising and knowledge management activities were apparent in project districts. However, wider dissemination of knowledge and awareness raising products for replication and up-scaling of the project remains yet to be achieved adequately. The project has contributed in economic and social empowerment of most vulnerable Farmer’s Field School group members and specifically the women. However, a robust agriculture sector support mechanism will be required to sustain the impact in future.

    Report of the Stakeholder Workshop on the GEF Climate Resilient Fisheries and Aquaculture Development Project in Bangladesh. Dhaka, Bangladesh, 29 - 30 August 2012 2013

    The workshop was hosted jointly by WorldFish and the Department of Fisheries (DOF) Bangladesh, with financial assistance from FAO. The 60 workshop participants were policy-makers, professionals and practitioners. Presentations covered the understanding of climate change impacts and fisheries, adaptation for fisheries and aquaculture to the adverse impacts of climate change (CC) in the context of Bangladesh, and the process of Project Identification Form (PIF) development to access global funds f or CC adaptation for the least-developed countries. A dozen presentations focused on: (i) CC impacts on fisheries and aquaculture; (ii) global perspective and adaptation funding opportunities; (iii) CC impacts on fisheries and aquaculture in Bangladesh; (iv) CC hotspots in Bangladesh and fisheries; (v) current efforts by government and other actors in addressing CC and fisheries; and (vi) Global Environment Facility (GEF) fisheries project proposal development (PIF) and next steps. Workshop disc ussions largely focused on CC impacts on fisheries and aquaculture systems, especially some CC-related hotspots (e.g. the coastal zone and haor basins). Participants emphasized the need to enhance understanding of CC impacts through conducting adaptive research on different CC hotspots. They also recommended possible interventions to adapt to CC threats. Sea-level rise, salinity intrusion, cyclones, drought, erratic rainfall, flash flooding and sedimentation were identified as the key CC-related threats to fisheries and aquaculture. Major recommendations included improvement of fisheries-related national policies and strategies by incorporating CC issues, including capacity building of DOF and communities dependent on fisheries and aquaculture for their livelihoods. Discussion also revolved around development of CC-resilient technologies for aquaculture and fisheries management for the CC hotspots in Bangladesh. Based on the workshop recommendations, a PIF for the adaptation of Banglad esh fisheries and aquaculture to CC will be developed with three components: (i) climate-resilient fisheries sector and relevant national capacity development; (ii) strengthening knowledge and awareness of fisheries/aquaculture-dependent communities facing the adverse impacts of CC; and (iii) enhancing local adaptive capacity to support climate-resilient fisheries/aquaculture management and alternative livelihoods in the face of CC.
