Advancing Cross-sectoral Climate Resilient Livelihoods

Under this Signature Programme, Advancing Cross-sectoral Climate Resilient Livelihoods, UNDP supports countries to achieve pro-poor and pro-growth sustainable economic development and livelihoods in the face of climate change. This is done through strengthening adaptive capacity and enabling environments to create robust and responsive state institutions, capable public and private sector management, and skilled human resources to innovate, adapt and deliver to the changing conditions. UNDP is working to establish effective strategic governance, encouraging governance innovation and reform, and ensuring that institutions are able to cope with next generation development challenges.

Through Advancing Cross-sectoral Climate Resilient Livelihoods, UNDP-GEF provides assistance to country-led efforts on climate change risk management in the context of agriculture and food security, water resources, coastal zone development, public health, and climate change-related disaster risks. These efforts are directly working to eradicate extrement poverty through sustainable economic transformation. By increasing adaptive capacity, UNDP supported projects under this Signature Programme aim to diversify and enhance livelihoods and sources of income for vulnerable populations, support climate resilient technologies and improve access to insurance and risk transfer mechanisms.
