Project Title: Strengthening Climate Resilience of Local Government
Duration: April 2019- October 2019
Donor: Co- Plan
The project ”Strengthening Climate Resilience of Local Government’’ aims to assess the adaptive capacity of municipalities in ‘’Disaster Risk Reduction’’ and to evaluate the needs and opportunities that these municipalities have on improving their ability in DRR projects. The projects will be implemented at three Municipalities: Lezha, Gjirokaster and Fier.
The specific objectives of the project :
- To get information on the adaptive capacity (institutional and technical) of the municipalities to cope with ‘’Disaster Risk Reduction’’ through in-depth interviews and desk research;
- Develop a policy brief/action plan that reflect the barriers identified during the first action and proposing recommendation how municipalities can overcome these barriers (technical, institutional) to cope with DRR. The policy brief therefore will serve as guideline introducing step by step actions that experts in the municipality must be taken into consideration during project preparation;
- Delivering of the policy brief to the local municipality through a series of workshops aiming to strengthen their capacity in risk assessment and Disaster Risk Reduction.
