Resource Kit for Building Resilience and Sustainability in Mekong Towns

2020-07-17T17:13:36+07:00

Natural systems are the essential foundation for Mekong town development and rehabilitation. The Resource Kit for Building Resilience and Sustainability in Mekong Towns is a seven-volume kit that promotes the maintenance and use of natural systems as a key strategy for building sustainability and resilience in urban areas. Prepared for the Asian Development Bank by ICEM as part of the award-winning TA 8186, the resource kit is built on the experience and expertise of a wide variety of professionals from the Mekong region and abroad.

Mainstreaming Climate Resilience into Development Planning

2020-04-22T17:41:02+07:00

About: Action to tackle climate change in Cambodia is crucial. Cambodia will be a hotspot for climate change in the region. Average maximum daily temperatures in the wet season are projected to increase from between 1.7 to 5.3°C. Average dry season temperatures will also increase with a range of between 1.5 to 3.5°C. Trends in precipitation are also expected to change over the coming decades. Seasonal variability in rainfall patterns will grow, resulting in wetter wet seasons and drier dry seasons.

DELTA (Developing Long Term Adaptation) Tools for the Mekong Delta

2020-01-10T15:22:20+07:00

About: The Mekong Basin with its complex monsoon climate is highly exposed to climate change. Average annual temperatures are expected to increase by 3-5°C by mid-century with average wet season precipitation increasing by 3-14% (USAID, 2013). For the floodplain areas of Cambodia and Viet Nam, increases in wet precipitation will be coupled with increased peak daily precipitation events and drier dry seasons, compounding water availability issues by making wet seasons wetter and dry seasons drier (USAID, 2013).

Climate Resilience in Cities in the GMS

2020-01-10T15:22:27+07:00

About: Rapid urbanization is taking place in South East Asia, with cities in the region expanding five times faster than those in member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Urban growth in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) in the next 50-100 years is expected to be primarily experienced in small and medium-sized cities and peri-urban areas along existing and new growth corridors. Many of these areas are highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.

Mekong Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change (ARCC)

2020-01-10T15:22:30+07:00

About: The Mekong River Basin faces a grave threat from climate change. Communities and governments must work together to develop and promulgate adaptation strategies that preserve the lives and livelihoods of some 60 million people. ICEM is working with DAI and SEA START as part of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Mekong Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change (ARCC) project to generate new data, new approaches and to spur adaptive change in the Mekong River Basin.

Mainstreaming Climate Change Risk Management in Development in Nepal

2020-02-25T12:22:54+07:00

About: The Government of Nepals (GoN’s) National Adaptation Programme of Action for Climate Change (NAPA) outlines 43 adaptation measures grouped into nine priority areas or ‘profiles’. Stemming from the NAPA, a Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR) has been developed focusing on long-term interventions aimed at enhancing climate resilience in Nepal. Mainstreaming climate change risk management in development is a technical assessment component of the SPCR. The expected outcome is that the GoN’s infrastructure development programs, policies and projects incorporate safeguards to address the effects of climate change.
