The impacts of climate change have been affecting the livelihoods, food security, water security, and health of millions of people in countries like Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Timor-Leste, and Vanuatu. Poor and vulnerable populations in these countries are disproportionately affected by climate change due to their high levels of exposure and limited access to climate information and adaptive capacity. There is an urgent need for scaling up adaptation action at the local level to address the increasing climate shocks and stresses in these countries. Climate finance is crucial for promoting adaptation among the poor and vulnerable, yet less than USD 1 in every USD 10 of climate finance commitments specifically target local climate action. 

To address these challenges, the Community Resilience Partnership Program (CRPP) proposes to scale-up adaptation measures that address the nexus between climate change, poverty, and gender inequality at the community level. The program will focus on three key areas: i) Strengthening institutional and community capacity to deliver adaptation measures at local level’ ii) improving information and systems for delivering climate-risk informed investments at scale; and iii) providing climate-resilient pro-poor livelihoods and infrastructure investments. By focusing attention on vulnerable communities, CRPP will foster a stronger sense of ownership over local adaptation endeavors to ultimately increase the collective benefits derived from these efforts.
