Rural Finance Programme: Adaptation to Climate Change

2010-08 to 2010-12

Major activities addressing a green economy: The climate of the Philippines is characterised by extreme weather conditions that often threaten the livelihoods of poor people especially those dependent on the agricultural sector. Based on a supply-demand analysis for adaption financing, AFC designed a programme for KfW that aims at making households, farmers and small enterprises less vulnerable to risks associated with climate change. To be more specific, the KfW program will provide long-term finance and supporting grants to local government units for their investment plans related to reduction of vulnerability to adverse climate-related events
