This paper introduces a framework of practical entry points at the national and local level for addressing climate change adaptation and resilience and maps them across the agriculture value chain and non-farming options in South Asia.

Countries in South Asia already face considerable water management challenges: water resources are overexploited and depleting fast, and institutions are struggling to manage and allocate water effectively. Climate change will exacerbate existing problems through irregular rainfall patterns and increased incidence of floods and droughts.

This paper provides highlights of the institutional context for tackling climate change across South Asia based on an assessment carried out as part of the Action on Climate Today (ACT) programme.

WaterAid is working hard to ensure that a portion of the US $100 billion committed to climate change every year from 2020 (known as climate finance) is directed towards the essential services – such as water, sanitation and hygiene – that poor people need to be resilient to change.
