Climate Change and Disaster Risk and Vulnerability Context of Province 5


The Province 5 Government, in collaboration with the Policy and Institutions Facility and Oxford Policy Management, conducted a comprehensive study on DRR and Climate Change to inform its periodic development plan. The analysis, spanning from 1971 to 2014 and projecting until 2100, indicates a significant increase in precipitation and temperatures across all districts. The region faces vulnerabilities to natural and human-induced disasters, impacting agriculture, water resources, ecosystems, and human health. Current limitations in CC adaptation and DRR activities highlight an urgent need for systematic legal, policy, and programmatic responses at both local and provincial levels. Additionally, the lack of organized data storage and information generation emphasizes the necessity for local governments to streamline climate and disaster information collection. The study underscores the importance of mainstreaming CC and DRR in legal measures and policies, urging the provincial government to support local governments in drafting resilient development policies and plans while strengthening institutional and financial arrangements at both levels of governance.
