Description: The development objective of the Climate Adaptation and Mitigation Program for the Aral Sea Basin Project for Central Asia is to enhance regionally coordinated access to improved climate change knowledge services for key stakeholders (e.g., policy makers, communities, and civil society) in participating Central Asian countries, as well as to increase investments and capacity building that, combined, will address climate challenges common to these countries. The project comprises of three components. The first component, regional climate knowledge services, will provide technical assistance, as well as minor civil works, goods (including software and equipment), and training, at both the regional and national levels, to develop a unified, integrated regional analytical platform for climate-resilient and low emission development, with improved data, information, knowledge, and decision-support tools. The second component, regional climate investment facility, will provide technical assistance and facilitation support to plan, implement, and manage climate investments. The second component consists of following two sub-components: (i) investment financing; and (ii)capacity building and community support. The third component, regional and national coordination consists of the following two sub-components:(i) regional coordination; and (ii)national coordination.
