Supporting resilience in developing countries
The economies and infrastructure of developing nations are the most vulnerable to climate change and the developed world has a responsibility to help these nations to adapt to climate change. The Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) is a 1.2-billion-dollar programme that supports climate-vulnerable nations to develop resilience to climate change. Most PPCR projects do this by helping countries to integrate climate change into their national development plans.
In 2017, a OneWorld/OPM team designed a global learning platform for the PPCR. The platform was designed to facilitate the sharing of knowledge between participants of different PPCR projects in order to highlight effective approaches to building climate resilience.
As part of this process, the team set up a Facebook group as a pilot for online shared learning, which can be accessed here https://www.facebook.com/groups/ppcrcop/. OneWorld was also responsible for event facilitation and relationship building and took part in various PPCR global learning events .
OneWorld also developed a set of indicators to monitor the learning process as it took place, making use of the PPCR online platform to gather data.
Working with the CIF team, PPCR pilot countries and other groups, the project team developed the ‘Knowledge for Resilience’ series, which includes country case studies, policy briefs and infographics. This series includes publications on:
The ‘Knowledge for Resilience’ series is available in the publications section.
