    Climate Risk Toolbox
    Guiding material for climate risk screening
    2023

    No results found.

    The Climate Risk Toolbox (CRTB) was developed to support climate-resilient project design. The tool is an open-access resource, hosted on the Hand-in-Hand Geospatial platform, allowing users to obtain a climate risk screening and report containing climate resilient measures, crucial to strengthen project formulation at early stages. The CRTB complies with requirements of international financial institutions and can be used by development practitioners for high-level screening at an early stage of planning processes or project design. This manual is a comprehensive guidance material to support users in navigating the online tool, including all the technical specifications behind the tool. This guidance document is key to ensure transparency of data and to strengthen its application by users.

    Establishing a Portal for Water Accounting Information - MTF/GLO/231/ASB 2021

    Seventy percent of water withdrawals are made for agricultural purposes, making it the sector that consumes the most water globally. Demands for water are expected to grow further in the near future, as it is estimated that agricultural production needs will rise by nearly 50 percent by 2050. At the same time, the issue of water scarcity is estimated to affect nearly half of the global population for at least one month per year. This situation is also expected to worsen, with a possible 4.8–5.7 billion people periodically not having access to water by 2050. For these reasons, sustainable water management is of crucial importance to the sector. A way to mitigate both issues is through water accounting. Water accounting is defined as the systematic study of the status of and trends in water supply, demand, accessibility and use in targeted areas. The information gathered through water accounting supports effective decision-making with regards to water management and leads to increased water productivity, which is critical to achieving food and water security as global needs grow. This project was formulated to develop a Portal for Water Accounting within FAO’s Global Information System on Water and Agriculture (AQUASTAT). The Portal was designed to be fully compatible with both AQUASTAT and the Water Productivity Open-access Portal (WaPOR), as well as FAO’s corporate Geospatial Information System that was developed through the Hand-in-Hand Initiative. These tools can assist stakeholders in making evidence-based decisions with regards to water management as a means of increasing water productivity worldwide.

    The project “Strengthening Agro-climatic Monitoring and Information Systems (SAMIS) to improve adaptation to climate change and food security in LAO PDR” has as its objective to enhance capacities to gather, process, analyse, and share climatic and geospatial information so that these can be applied to planning and decision-making. The present Training Need Assessment determines the training needs for the activities of the project related to the climatology database management, agro-meteorology and climate services preparation, as well as standard operating procedures. This document also discusses the procedure for implementing the training process including in-country and overseas trainings. This assessment has been developed focusing at the need of the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology (DMH) within the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment but will benefit a multiplicity of national level actors.
