Field of activity 3 (technologies and rural infrastructure) aims to step up the use of innovative technologies adapted to climate change.
The focus is on inter-provincial models and on the introduction of innovative technologies for improved water management and coastal protection through the use of infrastructure that is appropriate for and adapted to rural areas. A comprehensive digital monitoring system for risk-based riverbank and coastal erosion protection will help secure people’s livelihoods.
In combination with corresponding data processing, including regional satellite-based big data on climate forecasts and developments in coastal and riverbank lines, this approach can be used to make decisions on infrastructure investments.
The project promotes dialogue in a bid to forge alliances between associations, companies and government agencies, the aim being to develop specific technologies and innovations. Joint activities can be funded and implemented within the scope of integrated PPP measures. Government institutions (especially MARD, DARD and the PPCs) and the private sector will receive advice on the preparation and processing of digital data and will receive pertinent technical support.
Together with VNDMA, the TC measure intends to implement ecosystem-based and income-generating innovations for sustainable natural resource management that are equally accessible to both men and women.
- Introducing/piloting innovative technologies in water management, coastal monitoring and disaster mitigation
- Creating enabling institutional environment for non-public sector engagement/investment in disaster resilience
- Enhancing coastal community’s resilience to disaster hazards (drought and salinity intrusion)
- Enabling private sector engagement in promoting climate-sensitive solutions for more resilient production and more market opportunities.
- Creating more jobs for coastal communities through innovation and involvement by both women and men in economic development
