Adaptation: Priority measures:

1) Institutional and system strengthening for downscaling climate change models, climate scenario-building, climate monitoring and observation;

2) Roll-out of science-based climate/disaster risk and vulnerability assessment process as the basis for mainstreaming climate and disaster risks reduction in development plans, programs and projects;

3) Development of climate and disaster-resilient ecosystem(s);

4) Enhancement of climate and disaster-resilience of key sectors – agriculture, water and health + 2 other highlighted priority measures.
