Based on the funding availability, this project will build the capacity of 20 mid- to senior-level representatives from Pakistani non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the Punjab provincial government to mitigate the effects of climate change, specifically severe flooding.
The project will
consist of a multi-day series of short workshops with U. S. subject matter experts and include both female and male NGO and government respresentatives.
The project output will be a practical flood resilience and mitigation action plan to support provincial efforts in combatting flooding and its effects.
Increasing the capacity of Pakistani NGOs and the Punjab provincial government to mitigate the effects of flooding will contribute the building community-level resilience to climate change and enhance the ability of NGOs and the government to bring out positive change in governmental policies to address this issue.
