The study will identify climate risks associated to the areas of intervention for the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) in the country that are relevant to the private sector (water management and infrastructure, agriculture and food security, meteorological knowledge management and climate data). Based on the identified risks, the study will consider how the private sector, including commercial banks, can protect themselves from those climate risks as well as deliver essential products and services to help communities and businesses tackle climate challenges. The study will also analyze the existing enabling environment and market barriers that prevent the private sector from engaging in climate adaptation. Moreover, the study will identify potential private sector investments.

The proposed study will investigate the risks created by lake level fluctuation now and under climate change for transport on and around Lake Victoria, and identify solutions to reduce these risks. It will answer the following questions: how would different lake water-level scenarios (e.g., overall increase, overall decrease, and status quo. and associated variation range) impact transport operations (port infrastructure and operations and access roads) given different scenarios on shipping demand growth? What could be good investment strategies given that we cannot predict future lake level fluctuation or transport demand on the lake?
