UNDP-ALM Case Study: Hungary - 2010

UNDP-ALM Case Study: Albania, 2010

The Drini and Mati River Deltas in Albania are experiencing stressful impacts on biodiversity and ecosystems as a result of climate change. There is currently a lack of institutional and individual capacities to undertake a rigorous assessment or to address the potential climate change impacts on biodiversity. The aim of this project is to address key risks and vulnerabilities in the coastal areas of Drini Mati River Deltas of the Northern Adriatic by developing the capacity to adapt to climate change.

UNDP-ALM Comoros Case Study (February 2012)

Abstract: Rainfall decline, mean annual temperature and climatic hazard frequency are expected as climate change unfolds in the Comoro archipelago. As a result of these impacts, climate change will negatively impact water supply and quality, both of which are already affected by inadequate management of water resources and deforestation.

UNDP-ALM Case Study: Bangladesh (November 2011)

ABSTRACT: In Bangladesh, many communities are situated close to the shoreline and are reliant on agriculture and fishing for their livelihoods. Rising sea levels and changes in the frequency and intensity of tropical cyclones are raising the incidences and severity of flooding, salt water intrusion and erosion, not to mention loss of livelihoods, shelter and life.  Given these circumstances, the Government of Bangladesh is implementing a project to reduce the vulnerability of communities in five coastal districts most susceptible to the effects of climate change.
