    Adapting to Climate Change: New GEF Projects Show New Ways to Beat the Heat

    The Global Environment Facility (GEF) Council today approved a grant of $9.9 million to finance two climate adaptation projects designed to help communities in Ecuador and Peru combat problems associated with glacial retreat in the tropical Andes and improve water management in Ecuador.

    “The GEF’s mandate is to help developing countries combat the adverse effects of climate change,” said Monique Barbut, GEF CEO. “These projects are focused on adaptation and geared toward empowering communities to better meet the threats posed by a changing climate.”

    Project Highlights

    The threats to changes in water supply associated with glacial retreat are only receiving attention now. Lessons learned from these projects will help generate a knowledge base that policymakers can draw upon to inform the design of a new generation of adaptation projects in developing countries.
