Project Title:   Capacity Strengthening of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) for Adaptation to Climate Change (CLACC).
Type of Project Climate Change Implementation
Duration:   October 2003- to present
Status:   Ongoing
Partner Organizations:   IIED-UK, The Dexter Trust-UK, Royal Ministry of Foreign Affairs-Norway, BME-Germany and BCAS
Key words: Least Developed Countries, Capacity Strengthening, NAPA, Civil Society, Adaptation, Climate Change Impact
Main Objective:   a) Strengthening capacity of civil society in LDCs to adapt to climate change and enhancing adaptive capacity among most vulnerable groups b) Establishing an information and knowledge sharing system to help countries to deal with the adverse impacts of climate change c) Integrating adaptation to climate change into the work of key non-government institutions and mainstreaming the NAPA process in these institutions.
Brief Description: Capacity Strengthening of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) for Adaptation to Climate Change (CLACC) is a multi country project implemented by the IIED in association with four Regional and International Networking Group (RING) partners. They are: BCAS in Bangladesh, ACTS in Kenya, ENDA in Senegal, and ZERO in Zimbabwe. The project supports the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) in their efforts to adapt to the impacts of climate change through long-term capacity strengthening activities with government as well as civil society. As part of the capacity building CLACC has initiated Fellowship Programme for researchers working in the civil society organizations.
Output Reports and working papers on adverse impacts of climate change, best practices to address local issues related to climate events and mainstreaming adaptation into policies and activities were prepared. CLACC has brought together leading national and international experts and policy planners under the alliance of RING network which is supported by IIED and other development partners. The network is getting stronger in advocating for integration of climate change issues and mainstreaming adaptation into the government policy making and programme development process.
