The objective of the assignment is to ensure reduced vulnerability and improved resilience at the sub-national level by integration of climate change adaptation measures into the local development planning. As a result, 6 (six) district town will benefit from enhanced plans with integrated climate change adaptation response that best meet local needs for building climate resilience.
The assignment will be carried out in three major phases:
1. Methodology for either developing CC Adaptation Plans or mainstream climate change adaptation measures into the local development planning documents of 6 (six) selected district towns (Soroca, Ocnita, Telenesti, Ialoveni, Cimislia, and Causani).
- Decide together with Local Public Authorities (LPA) for either developing CC Adaptation Plans or mainstreaming climate change adaptation measures into the local development planning documents;
- Assess relevant national climate change adaptation strategic frameworks and propose integration of relevant findings at the local level;
- Conduct stakeholder analysis to identify the main actors and groups to be engaged into the local CC adaptation process. Stakeholder engagement should be based on the Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA), and the Gender Equality Principle;
- Identify all sources of information, required for effective development of Adaptation Plans;
- Perform the risk analysis for this assignment;
- Formulate tailored methodology for 6 (six) district towns that includes main aspects of the integration of the adaptation measures into the local development process. The methodology should include, but not be limited to, the following components:
- Methodology for identification of climate change risks and vulnerabilities for the selected district towns;
- Methodology for identification of the adaptation options;
- Recommendation for either developing CC Adaptation Plans or mainstreaming climate change adaptation measures into the local development planning;
- Legal and normative framework relevant for CC Adaptation Plans or mainstreaming of climate change adaptation into the local development planning;
- Timeline of implementation;
- Methodology for local stakeholders’ engagement;
- Awareness raising and knowledge management plan;
- Risks and mitigation measures;
- Content of the Adaptation Profile (Specific Objective 2).
2. Climate Change Adaption Profiles for 6 (six) selected district towns (two per Development Region) developed.
- Establish the vision and main principles that will guide the adaptation process in each selected district town. The vision should be developed with the involvement of various stakeholders at different local level and should be based on the HRBA and Gender Equality approach;
- Support local authorities in establishing the working groups that will be involved into the adaptation process;
- Define baseline that will serve as a starting point for setting priorities and targets;
- Identify climate change risks, trends, and possible impacts along with overall vulnerabilities for each selected district town;

- Assess adaptation measures from a livelihood and poverty reduction perspective. Adaptation measures should be tailors to the local condition and sectors involved. A wide range of adaptation measures should be consulted with relevant stakeholders and prioritized;
- Link proposed measures with the relevant national, regional, international strategies and commitments;
- Raise the awareness of the working groups on the impacts of climate change and potential actions to improve institutional and individual resilience;
- Conduct two one-day seminars for each town on the adaptation process, impacts of climate change, town-specific adaptation concept and other relevant aspects;
- Identify financial resources (public budget, donor support, investments, etc.) for implementation of the adaptation measures. Develop a fund mobilization plan for adaptation measures;
- Develop Adaptation Profile for each selected district town.
3. Climate Change Adaptation Plans for selected district towns developed in a participatory and inclusive manner.
