About MAIL/ CDRRP- Climate Induced Disaster Risks Reduction Project:

Rural livelihoods in Afghanistan are threatened by the impacts of climate change, specifically those associated with climate-induced disasters. Total annual precipitation will decrease, with greater variety between seasons. This leads to increase in severity and frequency of climate-induced disasters such as flooding, drought, and landslides; resulting in loss of life, agriculture crops and livestock, and displacement of communities. Rural communities in Jawzjan and Nangarhar provinces have limited resources to invest in adaptation measures to reduce risks associated with these disasters.

The Adapting Afghan Communities to Climate-induced Disaster Risks project aims at promoting community-based and gender-sensitive adaptation to the impacts of climate change in the two provinces through implementation of activities under four complementary components: Firstly, the project will build capacities for decision-making on and implementation of gender-sensitive climate-induced disaster risk reduction measures. Secondly, community-based early warning systems will be established to improve monitoring and response to climate-induced disasters. The third component will introduce climate-resilient livelihood options within the target communities with focus on women, youth, and other marginalized groups; and construct climate-resilient habitats and shelters. Finally, the project will develop capacities of national and sub-national institutions to integrate climate change into development planning. The project is a joint intervention between MAIL and UNDP, and will be implemented by MAIL as part of the ministry’s Central Programme Office for Natural Resources Management (CPO-NRM).
