To improve the resilience of cities to disasters and climate change, including floods Plan International in Pakistan initiated its work on climate change under the Urban Climate Change trust fund. This project is being supported by Resilience with the financial support of Asian Development Bank. Under the project five cities Sahiwal and Sialkot) in Punjab and Peshawar, Abbottabad and Mardan in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are being supported to integrate climate change into city planning, project development and implementation and knowledge sharing and capacity building to reduce the risk of increasing urbanization and climate change on urban populations, particularly the poor. Plan international in Pakistan is extending its technical support to city governments and URF. This project focus is more on coordination rather than actual service delivery.

Current Projects contributing to Climate Change

1. SCORE  (Supporting Community Resilience)
2. Strengthening the Governance of Climate Change Finance to Benefit the Poor and Vulnerable in South Asia
3. Community conserves natural resources to protect its future
4. Project: Scaling-up of Glacial Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF) risk reduction in Northern Pakistan, to be able to strengthen capacities of vulnerable communities to address the GLOF, GCF resources to upscale ongoing initiatives on early warning systems and small, locally-sourced infrastructure to protect communities from GLOF risks. The interventions proposed for scale-up by this project will be based on activities implemented in two districts that have demonstrated success. In these districts engineering structures like gabion walls have been constructed and automatic weather stations, rain gauges and discharge equipment have been installed. Rural communities receiving this support were able to avoid human and material losses from GLOF events. The proposed GCF project will expand coverage of interventions to fifteen districts in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan provinces. It will strengthen the technical capacity of sub-national decision makers to integrate climate change and disaster risk management into medium- and long-term development planning processes.
