Climate Change Adaptation and Renewable Energy Project

 

Summary

Climate change is one of the most important threats to the development of South Sudan. Studies estimate that temperatures rise two and a half times higher than the global average with the weather expected to become substantially warmer and drier. Anticipated climate changes are estimated to lower crop yields by an 20%, increase risks of floods and droughts, exacerbate risks of pests, disease outbreaks and inter-communal conflicts around natural resource access and control.

Undp in partnership with the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management proposes to establish a climate monitoring and early warning system for timely provision of information to enhance disaster preparedness and reduce the vulnerability of local communities to floods and droughts.

Primary Objectives

  • To strengthen the hydro-meteorological monitoring network across to accurately measure and predict extreme climatic events.
  • To establish flood and drought early warning systems to reduce the vulnerability and impact of communities to the environmental hazards.
