Dominican Republic Fact Sheet: Planning for Climate Adaptation Project
This fact sheet provides an overview of the Planning for Climate Adaptation Project in the Dominican Republic to increase the resilience of people to the impacts of climate change through improved municipal-level land use planning processes.
USAID is working with municipal officials, community-based organizations, the private sector and relevant stakeholders to mainstream climate change considerations into participatory land use planning and managing climate risk. Through these activities, the Dominican Republic will have the first comprehensive land use plans that integrate climate change adaptation in eight municipalities, with personnel across municipal departments trained in participatory planning and climate change adaptation techniques and tools.
As outlined in the factsheet, this project has completed peer-to-peer exchanges with two municipalities, published four municipal-level climate change vulnerability assessments, and has developed The Guide for the Formulation of Municipal Land Use Plans.
