Description: Officially launched by the Prime Minister of Tuvalu on August 30 2017 in the capital of Funafuti, the Tuvalu Coastal Adaptation Project, implemented by UNDP, is set to shore up Tuvalu's coastal defenses in the face of rising sea levels and storm surges driven by climate change.
The Tuvalu Coastal Adaptation Project, set to run for seven years, is financed with US$36 million from the Green Climate Fund and $2.9 million from the Government of Tuvalu.
“Some time ago a little girl on the island of Nanumea asked me: ‘Prime Minister what can you do to save me? How can you ensure I can continue living on my island?’ That question struck at the bottom of my heart. It has become my mission and must be the mission that every Tuvaluan to paddle together to.” said Prime Minister Enele Sopoaga, at the launch event. “This project is the pride of Tuvalu. Its implementation is based on strong partnership with island leaders and communities, and with our partner UNDP we will paddle together to build resilience...”

A discussion about how development organizations and businesses can support vulnerable communities prepare for flood risk and build a more secure future in the face of persistent shocks and stresses. The Global Resilience Partnership looks to identify and scale local solutions in an effort to pivot away from reactive responses to disasters and build resilient communities. This includes funding innovative projects through challenges like the Water Window so we can help bring these ideas to scale.

Description: Considered one of the most disaster-prone areas in Myanmar/Burma, the coastal state of Rakhine is no stranger to natural disasters ranging from floods, cyclones, landslides to earthquakes. More often than not, these events have a larger impact on those already highly vulnerable and who are least equipped to cope, such as the elderly, women, children, and people with disabilities.
With the aim of helping at-risk communities in preparing and responding to disasters, the Myanmar Consortium for Community Resilience (MCCR), a consortium of humanitarian organisations formed with the support of the European Commission, has introduced an inclusive community-based disaster risk reduction (DRR) programme to include the most vulnerable groups in disaster preparedness activities. With knowledge and skills obtained during the programme, they are now able to protect themselves, their families and livelihoods.

Description: The Greater Accra Region in Ghana is one of the fastest growing cities in West Africa, currently hosting over 4 million people. The regional economy accounts for about 25 percent of Ghana's national GDP. However, the unprecedented population growth and unplanned spatial expansion have exceeded the capacity of the city to keep up, resulting in housing shortages, urban sprawl, and informal settlements with inadequate urban services. This makes the Greater Accra Region vulnerable to a range of shocks. This was made clear in June 2015 when the region was deeply impacted by floods which affected over 50,000 people. Working with the World Bank, the Government of Ghana has identified the main issues that make the Greater Accra region vulnerable and formed a forward-looking strategy to create a more resilient Greater Accra Region that can better withstand the impact of disasters and reap the benefits associated with urban growth.
