German-aided project on climate change in Nagaland

 Kohima, Sept 29 (PTI): The Nagaland government and a German development bank have signed an agreement to raise adaptive capacity of rural people in the State in the face of climate change, an official said here.

As part of the climate change adaptation (CCA) project in the North-East, the German government-owned development bank, Reconstruction Credit Institute (KfW) yesterday signed the 'minutes of meeting' (MoM) with Nagaland government for implementation of the programme, he said.

The KfW German financial cooperation programme, which is likely to take off by early 2012, is intended to enhance the resilience and adaptive capacity of rural people to face the effects of climate change, the official said.

The project will be implemented by involving various government agencies, including Nagaland Environment Programme through Economic Development and NGOs, through micro-level planning and execution of livelihood programmes keeping in mind the challenges of climate change.
