Sri Lanka is highly vulnerable to climate change impacts. Extreme weather events have been recognised as a priority issue for the Government of Sri Lanka and they recently obtained a Credit from the World Bank through the Climate Resilience Improvement Project (CRIP).
There are two components under this contract. Component 1 aims to improve the understanding of the climate risk, enhance the country’s knowledge base and capacity, and develop a long-term investment plan to mitigate floods and drought risks in ten river basins. The final output of this component would be the development of detailed structural and non-structural drought and flood risk mitigation proposals and investment plans together with the flood and drought risk knowledge bases for the ten (10) basins.
Component 2 aims to advise on and implement urgent climate risk mitigation interventions of irrigation and transport infrastructure and schools damaged by recent floods and landslide events. Preparation of feasibility study for those selected interventions forms part of the Phase 2.
