UNDP-GEF Project Implementation Requirements

Integrating Climate Change Risks into Water and Flood Management by Vulnerable Mountainous Communities in the Greater Caucasus Region of Azerbaijan

Keti Chachibaia, Regional Technical Advisor, CC Adaptation



International Financial Architecture for adaptation;

GEF – SCCF results framework

UNDP/GEF projects implementation responsibilities

Monitoring and Evaluation Requirements:

  • Adaptive Management
  • Monitoring progress
  • Report on progress

Azerbaijan is not among the most vulnerable but with very low readiness to cope with Climate Change impacts




UNFCCC Financial Mechanisms for Adaptation


Strategic Priority

on Adaptation


Special Climate Change Fund


Least Dev. Countries Fund




  • Mainstreaming climate change adaptation into GEF projects TF.
  • GEF guidelines approved in 2005
  • $ 50 million programmed; now closed
  • Additional cost of addressing climate change impacts in developing countries
  • GEF manages SCCF separately from GEF TF
  • $112 million programmed
  • Support special urgent and immediate adaptation needs of 48 LDCs
  • GEF manages LDCF separately from GEF TF.
  • $140million programmed
  • Adaptation in developing countries party to the KP
  • GEF provides secretarial support to AF Board.
  • $160 million programmed
gef sccf results framework

Strengthened adaptive capacity to reduce risks to climate-induced economic losses

OBJECTIVE 1Reduce vulnerability to the adverse impacts of climate change, including variability, at local, national, regional and global level

Increased knowledgeof climate variability and change-induced threats

Strengthened awareness/ownership of climate risk reduction processes

Mainstream cc-risks into development frameworks

OBJECTIVE 2: Increase adaptive capacity to respond to the impacts of climate change, including variability, at local, national, regional and global level

Increase adaptive capacity of development sectors and natural resources

Diversify and strengthen livelihoods

Enhanced enabling environment to support technology transfer for cc-risk management

OBJECTIVE 3: Promote transfer and adoption of adaptation technology

Demonstration, deployment and transfer of adaptation technology



To reduce vulnerability of the communities of the Greater Caucasus region of Azerbaijan to water stress and hazards by improved water and flood management


Key institutions have capacities, technical skills, tools and methods to apply advanced climate risk practices for water stress and flood mitigation


Water and flood management practices demonstrated to lead to community resilience


Water and flood management policy and regulatory policy modified to respond to CC risks

Capacities of water user associations to apply SWAT, CWM and other risk management tools

A package of normative legal acts developed – IWRM, flood zoning regulations, conjunctive water use

Targeted training for flood risk assessment and planning

Soil and water assessment tool applied in 3 rayons at sub-basin watershed level

Rayon level water committees establish to strengthen sub-basin, water shed level water management planning

Water code and Land code revised to account for CC risks.

Hazard and inundation maps produced for better planning

Watershed management plans initiated in 3 rayons

Conjunctive water management model developed and introduced to respond to CC risks

Automated hydromet stations to increase coverage

Awareness raising and information campaign targeted to exposed and vulnerable communities

Community-based early warning system

adaptive management what changes are allowed
ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT - What changes are allowed?
  • Objective level:
    • Clearance from GEF in Washington D.C.
    • Revised Project Document – very difficult process
    • It is basically a new project – so not recommended, as you will need to resubmit
  • Outcome level:
    • Clearance from UNDP-GEF, reported to GEF
    • Revised Project Document
    • Not recommended , resubmission might be necessary
  • Output/Activity level:
    • Clearance from UNDP-CO, reported to Regional Coordination Unit
    • Revised Workplan, Budget Revision
  • Input level:
    • Agreement with UNDP-Regional Technical Advisor
    • Substantive Budget Revisions cleared by RCU

2.1. Logframe:

Developed during the project design

Refined and finalized at Inception Phase

2.2. Annual Work plan

2.3. Field visits from UNDP CO and UNDP/GEF RCU

2.4. Evaluations (Mid-term and Final)

reporting on progress

3.1. Inception report – progress in the inception stage;

3.2. Quarterly operational reports – progress each quarter;

3.3. Project Implementation Reviews /Annual Project Report – progress for the year;
