A strategy outline for the implementation of the “Climate Change Adaptation Project (CCA)” in industrial areas of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, India
Undertanding capacity Needs Assessment studies to understand the needs of capacity development of different stakeholders on policy, technical, regulatory, financial, planning and implementation, managerial and organizational and other processes
APIIC and TSIIC are state level industrial infrastructure development agencies for identifying and developing potential growth centres and industrial parks with developed plots/sheds, roads, drainage, water, power and other infrastructural facilities in their respective states. There are about 257 industrial parks in Andhra Pradesh spread over 13 districts, similarly in Telangana there are 118 IPs spread over 10 districts..
Effects of climate change are already being felt on plants, animals and sectors worldwide. This is having a significant impact on hundreds of living species and infrastructure around the world. With the increasing frequency and severity of climate change events, there is an urgent need to build up preparedness for addressing climate change. In the state of Andhra Pradesh, the impact of climate change has been felt all over the state as it varies from region to region and sector to sector. Industries are no exception and they face equal threat due to climate change.
In spite of significantly visible climatic hazards in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, India, there is a lack of representative data available on climate change impacts and the respective preparedness of industrial parks to cope with. The project ”Climate Change Adaptation in Industrial Areas in India” (CCA project) therefore developed and tested a methodology that allows to gather such climate risk data in a structured and comprehensive manner generating comparable information for the Industrial Areas analysed.
This report provides a critical review of the existing national and international climate finance architecture. It examines funding opportunities from multilateral climate funds including the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the Climate Investment Funds (CIFs), and the Adaptation Fund (AF). It also considers the experience of national funds created to address climate change such as India’s National Adaptation Fund for Climate Change (NAFCC). This report also illustrates existing architecture under GCF and NAFCC that is fit for the purpose of delivering finance for the industrial parks climate change adaptation measures.
