Climate Change Assistance (Klima)

Developing countries like the Philippines are vulnerable to the effects of climate change, such as rising temperatures, variable rainfall and more intense extreme events. These may aggravate poverty and security issues, threaten food security, water sufficiency and impede efforts for sustainable development.

The Climate Change Assistance (Klima) program aims to be a regional hub for East Asia that provides data, information and knowledge. Klima helps build the national, regional and local capacities that developing countries need in order to adapt to climate change and fulfill their commitments to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC).
