Program for Asia Resilience to Climate Change

Apply by August 30 for grants to test new technology for climate resilience

Seventeen technologies to boost climate resilience will be piloted in South Asia in 2022. They received Climate Innovation Challenge grants funded by the United Kingdom's Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

The Program for Asia Resilience to Climate Change (PARCC) is a trust fund supported by the United Kingdom's Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office and administered by the World Bank. 

PARCC was launched in 2018 to strengthen disaster and climate resilience in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. The program aims to develop hydromet services and early-warning systems that can save lives, improve livelihoods, and strengthen the resilience of vulnerable communities. 

The trust fund is part of the UK's broader program, Asia Regional Resilience to a Changing Climate Program, that works closely with the UK Met Office.

PARCC-funded activities include:
