What will be done under the pilot phase?
Under the Pilot phase, ABM will be tested with small-scale ABM demonstration projects for climate change adaptation, which are either replicable, scalable, or need funding for continued maintenance & operation.
A four-year approach
Establishment of an ABM Board, Methodology Panel & Secretariat
Enable project developers and host countries to determine the Adaptation Benefits in advance
While the African Development Bank has created several preliminary techniques that can be adjusted to a given situation, project developers, on the other hand, are allowed to suggest new techniques.
The scope for ABM projects
ABM Early Concepts
|○||Solar powered irrigation pumps to help farmers overcome unreliable rainfall;|
|○||Drip irrigation technology to make better use of available irrigation water;|
|○||Sustainable practices to protect cacao plantations from diseases exacerbated by climate change;|
|○||Climate resilient agriculture to diversify income streams of vulnerable farmers;|
|○||Development of weather information systems to provide farmers with accurate weather forecasts;|
|○||Job creation for the most vulnerable groups affected by climate hazards, particularly women and youth;|
|○||Coastal protection through afforestation with mangrove trees;|
|○||A range of clean energy technologies, which free up women and children’s time enabling them to become more economically productive or attend school and hence become less vulnerable to the negative impacts of climate change.|
