Project goals
Main goal

The overall objective of PAIRCC which participated in the 28 projects was to increase the resilience of the poorest and most vulnerable to the effects of climate change.

More precisely, the program aims first of all:

  • Promoting initiatives to adapt to the impacts of climate change for vulnerable groups and others.
  • Strengthen the capacities of network members to support vulnerable groups in adapting to the impacts of climate change.

In parallel and in addition to 28 PAIRCC projects, two other transversal initiatives were financed to partly capitalize on the experiences carried out by these projects and create a center to promote and disseminate the experiences of Mali Reso Climat on the adaptation to climate change. These initiatives were funded from December 2011 with a view to documenting experiences and supporting the sustainability of PAIRCC's actions.

PAIRCC projects involved in the resilience of vulnerable rural populations, including those for adaptation to climate change, were selected based on their compliance with the Swedish ICC guidelines
