Short Term Technical Assistance

Since this activity is primarily demand-driven (i.e., it is based on Mission and other operating units’ needs) the IRG Team will start by assessing those needs through an online survey of Mission support needs in climate change, especially adaptation.  Mission support will include the provision of data and other information, guidance on vulnerability assessments (VAs), development of FAQs, peer assists and communities of practice and other mechanisms.  We will discuss the most efficient way of assessing these broader needs.   The results of our analysis will be presented to the AREFS COTR and used as the basis for further dialogue with individual Missions.- AREFS and the CCRD Task Order team members and relevant expertise of staff and consultants available to the two projects.   These will be matched to criteria such as climate change adaptation topic (e.g. water scarcity, gender, impacts on agricultural value chains, biodiversity, infrastructure, etc.) as well as sub-region and country/language experience.- A list of Asia regional and country level organizations (training, research, technical assistance, education) available to work with Missions on climate change adaptation.  This list will be updated periodically.- Climate change adaptation projects already underway that can be monitored and used as potential models (this is part of AREFS Task 2).
