The Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark seeks to facilitate a common level of sustainable practice across tourism enterprises for the purposes of protecting the natural and cultural heritage on which much of the tourism product depends. Attainment of the Geopark Code of Practice represents a first and significant step on the journey of continuous improvement towards sustainability. It provides an excellent basis for applications for independent certification through third party organisations such as the Green Hospitality Programme.

Sustainable EcoLodge on Chiloe Island. Nature is our main supplier, our water comes from the rain and our energy from the wind and sun. To keep a sustainable operation we have designed electronic tools to allow guest to know their water and energy consuption on real time to make them aware. Establishing ecolimits(max ammount of water and energy a guest can use in a daily basis)we can keep a sustainable operation in which everybody participate, the Lodge and the guests.
The programme will stimulate more sustainable economic growth for women and men in
rural communities. This includes increasing their resilience to climate change impacts by
helping communities to diversify their livelihoods options and improving the management
of natural resources. Investments in climate-resilient infrastructure will also support
IFAD - Project for Adaptation to Climate Change in the Mekong Delta (AMD) in Ben Tre and Tra Vinh Provinces
The project will build the capacity of smallholder
farmers, communities and local institutions to
cope with the impacts of climate change and
expand into sustainable, profitable enterprises.
AMD will target poor communities, specifically
women-headed and ethnic minority
households. Thirty communes located along
a salinity gradient have been selected in
each province to test alternative livelihood
models, based on their poverty ranking and
vulnerability to climate change.
To buffer this growing range of climate-induced stresses, ASAP support will focus on
improving post-harvest processing and storage techniques, including developing the
financial incentives and policy mechanisms to bring these climate risk management
investments to scale. ASAP support will also provide a better understanding of how
agro-meteorological conditions influence harvest and post-harvest activities, so as to
take appropriate and timely action.
IFAD - Climate Change Adaptation and Agribusiness Support Programme (CASP) in the Savannah Belt of Nigeria
ASAP interventions under CASP will strengthen the capacity of farmers to use climate information for the planning and promotion of climate-resilient farming techniques. It will also implement larger investments to reduce the impact of climate hazards on rural infrastructure, farms and livelihoods.
NICADAPTA will improve incomes and quality
of life for rural families – and reduce their
vulnerability to the impact of climate change
– by facilitating access to markets for valueadded
coffee and cocoa. It will introduce water
efficiency and crop diversification measures
such as coffee-cocoa intercropping in coffee
plantations to buffer the effects of rising
IFAD - Fostering Agricultural Productivity Project – Financing from the Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (PAPAM/ASAP)
PAPAM focuses on irrigation, water management and sustainable land management at plot level to increase the yield per hectare. However, promoting climate-resilient agriculture requires an ecosystems approach beyond the plot. An approach focused on irrigated plots alone can be ineffective if the deforestation surrounding the watershed causes soil degradation, siltation and flooding during exceptional rainfall events.
The second phase of the IFAD-financed
Livestock and Market Development Programme
(LMDP II) will boost economic growth in pasture
communities by improving climate resilience
and livestock productivity. The programme
will focus on three regions in the south of the
country: Batken, Jalal-Abad and Osh.
ASAP funding will support GASIP to
mainstream climate change adaptation
and resilience of smallholder farms into the
business models and value chain interventions
of the wider programme. ASAP funding will
mainly focus on the northern regions, which
have higher levels of exposure to climate risks
and lower adaptive capacity.
IFAD - Programme to reduce vulnerability to climate change and poverty of coastal rural communities (PRAREV)
The programme will support the design and
implementation of participatory management
plans for ecosystem conservation to alleviate
stresses and increase the resilience of fragile
habitats. It will focus on integrating climate
change adaptation within national policies
and strategies, and enhance knowledge
management, education and communication.
In addition, PRAREV will help communities
diversify their livelihoods options so they can
take advantage of opportunities presented by
IFAD - Economic Inclusion Programme for Rural Families and Communities in the Territory of the Plurinational State of Bolivia with funding from the Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme
ASAP resources are complementing the first
component (natural resource management,
investment in assets and enterprise
development) of ACCESOS. Activities will
be focusing on 15 municipalities in three
departments: 10 municipalities in Chuquisaca,
4 municipalities in Potosí and 1 municipality
