PRIMEX works with local partners to protect the poor and vulnerable through climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction and management projects.
PRIMEX has solid experience in working with regional institutions, scientists, local governments, people’s organizations, and communities in climate change adaptation and DRRM projects. As Implementing Agency for the ADB Regional Technical Assistance for Coastal and Marine Resource Management – Southeast Asia (TA 7813-REG), PRIMEX assessed the vulnerability of coastal and marine ecosystems and resources to climate change impacts and designed and implemented community-based interventions to minimize or mitigate impacts in Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
We assisted the Philippine Climate Change Commission in the enhancement and finalization of the Philippine Country Programme, 2020 for funding by the UN Green Climate Fund (GCF). PRIMEX also provided technical support to ADB’s Pacific Department in the preparation of the Pacific Climate Change Implementation Plan (CCIP) and the design and implementation of projects in the Pacific, which focused on the mainstreaming of climate change considerations in-country strategies and programs and the improvement of the ability and resilience of Pacific countries to prepare for, and respond to, the challenges posed by climate change impacts through adaptation and mitigation.
In 2015, PRIMEX conducted an assessment of the legal/regulatory and institutional framework for DRRM in the Philippines and identified the enabling and constraining factors for the (i) mainstreaming of ex ante DRRM in development, investment, and spatial planning; (ii) risk-informed planning, budgeting, investment programming, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E); (iii) disaster risk financing and insurance (DRFI); and (iv) planning, coordination, and monitoring of recovery and rehabilitation and the development of a disaster recovery
