The Government of Pakistan has recognized the threat from GLOFs in its National Climate Change Policy and other relevant policies. GLOF and flood related hazards are already greater than what the national public finance can manage. To be able to strengthen capacities of vulnerable communities to address the GLOF issue urgently in the scale that is needed, the Government of Pakistan, with support from UNDP secured GCF resources to upscale ongoing initiatives on enhancing resilience of communities to climate change induced disasters in KP and GB, particularly GLOF risks. The interventions proposed for scale-up are based on activities implemented in two districts that have demonstrated success. In these districts engineering structures like gabion walls have been constructed and automatic weather stations, rain gauges and discharge equipment have been installed. Rural communities receiving this support were able to avoid human and material losses from GLOF events. The current GLOF-II project will expand coverage of interventions to eighteen districts (24 valleys) in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan. It will strengthen the technical capacity of national and sub-national decision makers to integrate climate change and disaster risk management into medium- and long-term development planning processes.
