Climate risk assessment for fisheries and aquaculture-based adaptation in Myanmar: Technical report outlining the methodology and approach

Friday, October 30, 2020

In 2012, the government of Myanmar developed a National Adaptation Plan of Action (NAPA) for climate change. The FishAdapt project aims to address the current barriers to delivering on the NAPA and more broadly as a contribution to addressing climate change impacts in the fisheries sector and its sub-sectors in Myanmar. The project’s strategy is to assess and understand current vulnerabilities at different scales in a science-based, cross sector and participatory manner towards developing, planning and piloting new adaptation practices and technologies, and evidence-based policy recommendations.
WorldFish, contractually known as the service provider, was tasked through a letter of agreement (annexed) to “identify national and regional sector priorities and gaps in support of VA methodology design under the FishAdapt project”. The LoA was designed with a participatory and multi-sectoral approach in mind that incorporated stakeholder consultations at Union and State and Region (Ayeyarwady, Rakhine and Yangon) levels, in addition to expert consultations in Myanmar and Internationally, and a comprehensive desk-based assessment of global VA best practice for potential implementation in Myanmar.
