Monterrey Metropolitan Water Fund (FAMM): Climate Change Disaster Risk Reduction in Mexico

Home to over 4 million people, the city of Monterrey derives more than 60% of its drinking water from upstream sources. The city is settled on both sides of the Santa Catarina river. Loss of vegetation cover, erosion, forest fires, invasive species and landuse change have all contributed to the degradation of water sources. The region is also prone to intense weather events; in 2010, Hurricane Alex devastated the area – costing the state of Nuevo León US$1.35 billion – and was followed by severe droughts in 2011. With continuing deforestation and rapid urban expansion, the risk of future flooding is predicted to intensify, with a very real risk of floods exceeding the capacity of the dam that protects the city from high flows. After three years of preparatory work, structural design, feasibility studies, scientific analyses and fundraising (mainly through the Latin American Water Funds Partnership), the Fondo de Agua Metropolitano de Monterrey (FAMM) was launched in 2013 and became Mexico’s first legally established Water Fund (WF). Over the next 20 years, the WF will focus its work on a strategically targeted area covering over 151,000 hectares. Four key objectives drive the WF’s work: reduce flooding, improve infiltration, raise awareness among the population, and promote an increase in the percentage of federal resources that support the watershed. FAMM already has US$8 million pledged from the private sector and is currently supported by over 40 partners. The WF’s work is predicted to have a significant positive impact on runoff from flooding in the areas of highest sensitivity. Although the WF activities cannot prevent catastrophic flooding or mitigate all impacts from extreme droughts, they have significant potential to reduce the severity of flooding and sustain critical base flows.

Building the resilience of vulnerable coastal communities against floods in Sri Lanka

Seacology is building resilience through the conservation of mangroves among vulnerable communities in northern and eastern Sri Lanka. The region, one of the country’s poorest areas, continues to suffer from the effects of the long-lasting civil war that ended in 2009. Mangroves are critical to building resilience: combating the effects of global climate change by absorbing up to 50 times more carbon than other types of ecosystems, acting as a natural buffer against the force of storm surges, and acting as critical nursery grounds for fish, enhancing employment opportunities.

Devising Local Coping Mechanisms and Adaptation Technologies to Build Climate-Resilience Capacities of Urban Poor in South Asia

MHT received funding to empower women from slums in seven South Asian cities to take action against the most pressing climate-related risks facing their communities: heatwaves, flooding, water scarcity and water- and vector-borne diseases. Through the improved availability of real-time micro data, the team could equip the urban poor with the tools and know-how to undertake vulnerability and risk assessments and implement their own resilience plans. Utilizing a network of woman advocates, it could empower these communities to influence city planning so that their cities adopt adaptation and resilience actions that reflect a pro-poor agenda.

Resilient Rural Livelihoods in Ecologically Fragile Drylands of the Sahel

Groundswell International has engaged in building the resilience of communities in the Sahel’s ecologically fragile dry lands, giving particular attention to women in more vulnerable households. The team helped small-scale farmers experiment with agro-ecological innovations to increase climate-resilient food production and dietary diversity in their communities, while also regenerating soils, trees and vegetative cover. By enhancing women’s access to credit, land and water, the team aimed to empower female farmers in the process. These efforts were brought to scale by fostering intensive ‘farmer-to-farmer’ learning and exchange between communities, linking up with district government development programs and fostering more effective nationwide policies and programs to build resilience.

Floating houses: Community-Based Flood Resilience Innovations in Bangladesh

The Center for Climate Change and Environmental Research (C3ER) at BRAC University has tested community-led innovations that enhance the resilience of households and communities before, during and after floods. The project solution involved the design and testing of flood-resilient houses, and related integrated innovations such as water harvesting, cage fishing, and renewable energy using a community-based participatory process.
