OBJECTIVES
Collect baseline data on the following - climate
in tea and coconut growing areas over several
past decades - productivity of tea and coconut
over several past decades separately for
different agro-climatic zones - socio economic
information both from documented sources and
primary sources.
12
OBJECTIVES Contd.
  • Project the climate change scenarios in the
    coconut and tea growing areas based on the global
    circulation model results down-scaled to Sri
    Lanka. 
  • Assess the impacts of climate change on
    productivity of tea and coconut and socio
    economic status of the people within the
    plantation sector.
  • Identify adaptation options and assess their
    feasibility of implementation

13
OBJECTIVES contd.
  • Build capacity of natural and social scientists
    engaged in plantation research for undertaking
    assessment studies incorporating impacts,
    vulnerability and adaptation.
  •  
  • Train scientists to prepare proposals for seeking
    funds in meeting costs of adaptation to adverse
    effects of climate change as provided in Article
    4 of the UN Framework Convention on Climate
    Change (UNFCCC, 1992).
  •  

14
WORK PLAN OF STUDY
  • The first stage will cover collection of baseline
    data of climatic parameters and production data
    on coconut and tea, their analysis and
    constructing future scenarios for temperature and
    precipitation changes, and future variations in
    productivity, economy, unemployment and national
    revenue

15
WORK PLAN Contd.
  • The second stage will cover assessment of
    impacts, identification and assessment of
    adaptation measures using crop growth models.
    These models need initial calibration to suit
    local conditions and validated for current
    climate conditions. Thereafter these have to be
    tested with the climate change scenarios
    developed.

17
Workplan contd.
  • In the third stage, the impacts on the markets
    and trade due to changes in the productivity and
    the resulting effects on the planters, the labour
    force and the economy in general will be assessed.

18
WORKPLAN Contd.
  • In the fourth stage, adaptation strategies will
    be evaluated that will mitigate the adverse
    impacts and those which are most cost effective
    will be disseminated among planters. The project
    will also include training of scientists for
    undertaking adaptive measures and further
    research on assessments

19
Year 1 Work Plan a)    Collect and analyze
climatic datab)   Collect and analyze production
and socio-economic datac)   Correlate production
data with climate parametersd)   Establish
climate change scenarios applicable to Sri
Lankae)  Provide Special Training Workshop on
Integrated Assessment Modelling
20
1. Project changes in production under no
climate change and climate change scenarios
2.  Calibrate and validate crop model
selected3.  Apply the model for climate
scenarios developed4.  Determine new
cropping calendar for coconut 5.  Provide
training by a visiting scientist. 6. 
Provide training opportunity to a few scientists
at IRICP
21
1. Assess impacts on production and
socio-economic factors.2.   Identify
adaptation strategies and evaluate their cost
effectiveness.3.   Training of scientists to
undertake future research on climate change
reports. 4.   Attend meetings where the
findings of the assessments were
discussed.5.   Formulate a set of
recommendations for the use of policy makers and
stake-holders. 6.   Prepare the
final project report for submission to START.

Stake Holder Activity
  • Members of Planters Associations, Exporters,
    Trade and Officials from the Ministry of
    Plantations were invited for the Inception
    Seminar held in April 2002
  • A presentation was made at a meeting held in
  • May 2002 for the Planters to discuss future
    developments in the industry
  • All stake holders were invited for the
    inauguration of the IAM workshop held in
    December, 2002
  • In general, the response has been rather poor,
  • except in the second

26
Linking to National Communication
  • Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources is
    responsible for the 2nd NC preparation
  • Ministry has launched a programme under GEF
    Enabling Activities Phase II, to support short
    term studies on impacts and vulnerability
    assessment
  • PI of the current project is a member of the
    Steering Committee of this programme.
  • Ministry has endorsed the current project as
    contributing to its effort to collect information
    for the preparation of the 2nd NC of Sri Lanka
