Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) as part of its CARE for South Asia project developed 14 sector briefs on agriculture, gender mainstreaming, policy, planning and finance, transport and water in the region.

The briefs provide a quick overview of the climate change situations in Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan followed by an in-depth analysis of its impacts on specific sectors. The briefs then highlight how the CARE for South Asia project aims to support the implementation of climate resilience and sector priorities as well as expected outcomes.

They are conveniently grouped by country to compare national initiatives in the region and identify opportunities for knowledge sharing and regional cooperation.

The CARE for South Asia project is implemented by ADPC with support from the World Bank.

The project’s overall objective is to contribute to an enabling environment for climate resilience policies and investments in agriculture, transport, water, and policy, planning and finance sectors in South Asia.

With a regional outreach, the national-level activities will initially be implemented in Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan. It also seeks to promote the transformation of policies, standards and institutional capacities for climate-resilient development across the key sectors.
