Sri Lanka: Agriculture Risks Assessment Phase II

Duration : November 1, 2017 - March 31, 2018
(Extended to June 30, 2018)

Sri Lanka formally submitted its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), focused on four dimensions: i) Mitigation ii) Adaptation iii) Loss and Damage and iv) Means of Implementation. There is limited information on the details of how, when, and at what cost the country?s NDC commitments will be put into practice. Therefore, the purpose of this TA aims to enhance the understanding of how to implement the agriculture and related water resources management aspects of the country?s NDC proposals. The overall objective is to develop the analytical underpinnings of climate risk and its management as it relates to the agriculture and water sectors, and is expected to advance the preparation of the Sri Lanka - Adaptation and Sustainable Development Project that is included in the World Bank?s Sri Lanka Country Partnership Framework 2016-2019. The specific objective of this TA is to support the Government in identifying policies and instruments to deliver on its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDCs) as it relates to agriculture development and water resources management, and create a solid foundation for the understanding and management of Climate Change risk.
