Project Climate Twin Phoenix has four main components which are systematically pursued through six outputs.
- Climate Change Vulnerability/ Disaster Risk Assessment
- Development of Priority Climate Adaptation and Disaster Risk Mitigation Actions
- Information, Education and Communications (IEC) Campaign and Competency Development
- Socio-Economic Resilience Development for the Poor and Most Vulnerable
Project Climate Twin Phoenix has identified and is pursuing six high-impact project outputs targeted to initiate and step up action to strengthen the stakeholders’ institutional and individual capacities and competencies in managing and reducing risks from climate change and climate-related natural hazards. Measurable targets have also been set to measure the project’s impact. Project outputs are being pursued interdependently to ensure consistency towards achieving the project targets. The specific targets for each output and the interrelationships with other outputs are presented in the figure below.

|Creation of flood hazard maps from the characterization of the four river systems and topographic and land use cover analysis of the riverbasins and scenario analysis based on the downscaled rainfall projections.Development of a climate and disaster exposure database to improve knowledge on population, structures and economic activities potentially at risk to climate and natural hazards.Preparation of flood contingency plans and installation of community-based and managed Flood Early Warning Systems.Build capacity by conducting training programs to enhance the skills, knowledge and appreciation of local stakeholders on climate change, climate change adaptation, and disaster risk management.Formulation of climate and disaster risk-sensitive regional physical framework plan, comprehensive land use plan, sectoral, and comprehensive development plans which promotes sustainable development.
Climate-proofing of the communities’ means of livelihood by designing safety nets and looking at other options such as micro-insurance.
Build knowledge by providing IEC materials, documenting project lessons, and putting up resource centers.
