Thematic Area Climate Resilient and Green Growth

The Climate-Resilient Green Growth (CRGG) assessment shows that Enga Province is exposed to the adverse impacts of climate change, as evidenced in a rise in temperature and potential changes in rainfall. At the same time, the province’s population and economy are very sensitive to these phenomena, given their dependence on sectors that experience considerable impacts from climate change—particularly agriculture. Finally, low-income levels and a lack of essential infrastructure such as transportation, health, electricity, water, and sanitation also mean their capacity to adapt to the adverse impacts of climate change is limited.
The CRGG assessment demonstrates that there are ample opportunities for fostering climate-resilient
green growth in Enga Province. Based on available data and research, and consultation with local stakeholders, the assessment identifies four priority areas for the province to enhance its resilience towards the adverse impacts of climate change:

•Agriculture;
•Water;
•Electricity supply; and
•Transportation.

For each priority area, the assessment identifies several interventions that could help strengthen
resilience against climate change.
