Strengthening Resilience of Vulnerable Communities in Sri Lanka and India to Increased Impact of Climate Change (ADAPT4R) is a five-year project supported by Adaptation Fund (AF) constituted under UNFCCC and executed in India by Ministry of Environment, forest and Climate Change and WFP as Multilateral Implementing Entity. The regional project targets the dry zones in Sri Lanka and drought prone districts on the eastern coast in the states of Odisha, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.

The project’s main goal is to strengthen the climate change adaptive capacity and food security of vulnerable communities in Sri Lanka’s dry zone and India’s eastern coastal states, utilizing a regional, integrated approach. Leveraging differentiated skills and experience in the two countries, and using participatory and bottom-up approaches, the project will enable vulnerable groups to use last mile climate services to plan and implement targeted adaptation measures best suited for different livelihoods and localities, supplemented by livelihoods diversification and enhanced linkages to existing financial services. A regional feedback loop will provide valuable real-time lessons for scaling up and out, both within and beyond the two countries.

The project will achieve its goal through the following two objectives:

1. Strengthen access to reliable, timely and targeted last-mile climate services, and develop a system to co-produce, disseminate and scale up tailored Agromet and hydromet advisories

2. Enhance the adaptive capacity of income-poor farming households facing high climate risks, with a focus on women and vulnerable groups, to develop and implement local adaptation plans informed by climate advisories, resulting in improved practices, and diversified, climate-resilient livelihoods
The project will target smallholder farmers in the inland, dry areas of the project localities, and vulnerable groups in both countries including marginalised communities e.g., PVTGs, women- and youth-headed households, and food-insecure households.
