Partnership, Applicability and Scalability of Innovations and Technologies for Climate Resilience in South Asia

What is it?

iCARE Innovations Fund aims to ignite breakthroughs for climate resilience in South Asia by promoting innovation in data analytics, decision support systems, and standards building on Tech Emerge and Climate Innovations Challenge. The fund will help in upscaling and co-creating innovations for climate adaptation, resilient infrastructure, and sectoral decision support systems for integrated water resources management and climate-smart agriculture.

The Fund is supported by the World Bank under the Climate Adaptation and Resilience (CARE) for South Asia project and a total of US$ 2.5 million is made available to ADPC to identify, scale, and pilot innovations to reduce climate risk and build climate resilience of communities vulnerable to such risks and extremes.

Facilitating innovators to deploy technology and innovative solutions to enhance climate adaptation across different sectors and levels is part of a 5-year project called “Climate Adaptation and Resilience (CARE) for South Asia” funded by the World Bank.

iCARE is a key component of the CARE for South Asia project
