USAID Considering Ways of Incorporating Climate
Change into Project Planning, Design, and
Management
  • Stratus Consulting is working with USAID on
  • Developing guidance for AID on methods for
    incorporating climate change
  • Testing methods in three pilot studies
  • Will revise guidance based on lessons learned

3
Pilot Studies
  • Examine incorporation of climate change in
    planned or ongoing USAID projects
  • Work with stakeholders to define objectives,
    identify adaptations, and review results
  • Use in-country analysts to conduct research
  • Will develop implementation plans
  • Pilots
  • Polokwane, South Africa Water supplies
  • La Ceiba, Honduras Flooding and coastal erosion
  • Mali Agriculture (specific project TBD)
  • Ill briefly discuss Polokwane and La Ceiba

4
Polokwane, South Africa
  • Concern is with long-term water supplies

5
Polokwane, South Africa
  • Water is transferred to the city
  • Polokwane is growing
  • Planning has not considered climate change
  • Climate models indicate potential for reduced
    runoff and soil moisture

6
Polokwane Study
  • Use a broad suite of climate change scenarios to
    capture possible changes in climate
  • Estimate changes in water demand from population
    and economic growth
  • Examine climate change effects on runoff and
    demand
  • DWAF will examine implications and adaptations
    using their planning model
  • Will meet with stakeholders to examine results
    and adaptation
  • Will develop implementation plan with AID Mission
    and stakeholders

7
La Ceiba, Honduras
8
La Ceiba Scope
  • Concerns about flooding, poor drainage, coastal
    erosion
  • Already serious issues
  • We are working with municipal planners, business
    community, and NGOs in La Ceiba

9
La Ceiba Project
  • Well develop scenarios of
  • Sea level rise
  • Intense hurricanes
  • Intense rains
  • Based on increases in temperature, not model
    output
  • Working with stakeholders and regional
    researchers on analyzing adaptations
  • Will develop implementation plan

I hope we can present results next year
