Northeastern Thailand relies heavily on agriculture and inland capture fisheries, sectors that will be severely affected by climate change impacts. Thus appropriate adaptation measures are urgently needed including tapping into climate finance sources. The Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific at the Asian Institute of Technology will contribute to address this gap by designing and delivering a training programme on “developing project proposals for climate adaptation projects” specifically for NGOs and government officials working in the region. Based on its extensive experience in capacity building for government officials and other stakeholders, RRCAP-AIT will map existing stakeholders – NGO and Universities – in the region, prepare training materials appropriate to the audience and deliver a 5-day training course based on an innovative set of methodologies and one-on-one mentoring of trainees. The outcome will be a cadre of 15 officers equipped to plan and develop sound and bankable adaptation project proposals. The materials will be available on a dedicated website and the network of professionals trained will be able to continuously share information and experiences through an online forum and other media. The post-training follow-up and mentoring will ensure the successful submission of proposals presented by participants during the training.
