Project Background, Outcomes and Impacts

Background: Qatar’s revised NDC highlights the importance of adaptation actions with mitigation co-benefits in the areas of water management, infrastructure, food security, and public awareness. Furthermore, the National Environment and Climate Change Strategy reiterates the urgency of strengthening resilience in key priority areas namely water, biodiversity, and land use. As such, GGGI is supporting the national adaptation planning process for the State of Qatar to enable the country to identify and address its medium- and long-term priorities for adapting to climate change as part of Qatar’s broader development strategy and post-pandemic recovery efforts. A key component of the process is carrying out evidence-based, participatory, and expert-guided climate risk assessment, which aims to: reduce the vulnerability of Qatar to the impacts of climate change by enhancing its adaptative capacity and overall climate resilience; and mainstream climate change adaptation into the broader development planning process in different sectors and levels.

Outcomes: Climate change adaptation and resilience mainstreamed in most vulnerable development sectors in Qatar

Impacts: Strengthened resilience to the impacts of climate change through reduced vulnerability and increased adaptive capacit
