  • Specific objectives
  • Supporting Bali Action Plan and Nairobi Work
    Program

Draft Guiding Principles
  • Preamble
  • Why this Dialogue?
  • Land and water resources, essential to
    development and livelihoods, are particularly
    vulnerable to impacts of climate change. Actions
    to adapt to climate change through an integrated
    approach to land and water management are
    urgently needed.
  • Impact primarily through land/water and
    biological processes
  • IPCC hot spots in the DC Africa, Asian mega
    deltas
  • Importance of land and water linkages
  • Establishing effective resilience to impacts of
    climate change.

5
Draft Guiding Principles
  • Principle No. 1 The Development Principle
  • Adaptation must be addressed in a broad
    development context, recognizing climate change
    as an added challenge to reducing poverty,
    hunger, diseases and environmental degradation.
  • The poor and marginalized groups most vulnerable
  • Adaptation an integral part of development
  • Synergies with the achievement of the MDGs
  • CC One of several drivers of change, along with
    others such as population and economic growth.
  • Effective integration into the national economy

6
Draft Guiding Principles
  • Principle No. 2 The Resilience Principle
  • Building resilience to ongoing and future climate
    change calls for adaptation to start now by
    addressing existing problems in land and water
    management
  • Impacts already beginning to be felt need to
    act today
  • Focusing on the adaptive capacity for
    livelihoods and ecosystem maintenance
  • No regrets investments for both hard and soft
    adaptation measures
  • - increased water use efficiency
  • - water storage capacity
  • - intensification and diversification in
    agriculture.
  •  

7
Draft Guiding Principles
  • Principle No. 3 The Governance Principle
  • Strengthening institutions for land and water
    management is crucial to effective adaptation and
    must build on principles of participation of
    civil society, gender equality, subsidiarity and
    decentralisation.
  • Comprehensive, integrated framework
  • Bottom-up meets top-down from community to
    trans-boundary
  • Adaptation mainstreamed in national governance
    systems
  • - transparent, gender sensitive, participatory
  •  

8
Draft Guiding Principles
  • Principle No. 4 The Information Principle
  • Information for local adaptation must be
    improved, and must be considered a public good to
    be shared at all levels
  • Global climate impact models need to be
    refined
  • We know enough to act, but need to reduce
    uncertainties
  • Improving and sharing data, scientific and
    local knowledge, and good practices
  • Real-time data for early warning

9
Draft Guiding Principles
  • Principle No. 5 The Economics and Financing
    Principle
  • The cost of inaction, and the economic and social
    benefits of adaptation actions, call for
    increased and innovative financing
  • Substantial increase in financing, targeted
    towards the most exposed groups
  • Agricultural practices that provide mitigation
    and/or adaptation benefits eligible for
    financial support
  • Utilizing the full range of financing options
