Description

This UNDP, FAO, UNEP, PAHO/WHO and GEF-SGP joint programme will promote the implementation of climate change adaptation and mitigation measures in vulnerable populations through sustainable land management and optimal water use, particularly in the agricultural and forestry sectors. The programme will focus on areas with high levels of land degradation, pressure on land and water resources, vulnerability to climate change and poverty. The overall aim of the programme is to build the capacity to adapt to, and mitigate climate change in order to contribute to environmental sustainability and poverty reduction in four priority watersheds in Panama. This will be achieved through the development of an Adaptation and Mitigation Strategy and a Pilot Climate Monitoring System, improvement of local management of land and water resources, and increased access to sources of funding, thus contributing to climate change adaptation and mitigation and to the achievement of MDGs 1 and 7.
