The Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) is integrated in the implementation of the joint programme to ensure environmental sustainability and to enhance the resiliency of the local community and the physical infrastructure from the impacts of natural hazards and extreme weather events.

The program will adopt a risk management approach, applying water safety mechanisms to prevent and minimize the contamination of water sources, to remove contamination through treatment and to prevent re-contamination during storage, distribution and handling of drinking water. Moreover, vulnerability assessments will also be utilized to determine risk-prone areas where water and sanitation systems are to be located and to identify communities that are more susceptible to geographical and water-related disasters.
