Publication Overview/Description

The Program for Asia Resilience to Climate Change, a trust fund administered by the World Bank and funded by the United Kingdom’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), has made US$ 3.5 million available to ADPC to identify and pilot innovations to reduce climate risk and build climate resilience of communities vulnerable to such risks and extremes.

It covers South Asia through two distinctive challenges - TechEmerge Resilience India Challenge and Climate Innovation Challenge (CIC) to facilitate innovations across different sectors at national, sub-national and local/community levels in the region.

The two initiatives are implemented as part of ADPC's Climate Adaptation and Resilience (CARE) for South Asia project supported by the World Bank.
