Climate Change Adaptation Project (CCAP)

The ILO works with UN agency and local and national partners to help communities to access resources and reduce risk to disasters triggered by climate change. The project explores risk transfer mechanisms including revolving funds and insurance schemes, and assists farmers to diversify their livelihood base and reduce risk exposure.
