Momentum for Change

Momentum for Change

is an initiative spearheaded by the UN Climate Change secretariat to shine a light on the enormous groundswell of activities underway across the globe that are moving the world toward a highly resilient, low-carbon future. Momentum for Change recognizes innovative and transformative solutions that address both climate change and wider economic, social and environmental challenges. Lighthouse Activities under the Momentum for change draw attention to the most inspiring and transformational mitigation and adaptation activities under four focus areas – 

  1. Urban Poor 
  2. Women for Results 
  3. Finance for Climate Friendly Investment, and 
  4. ICT Solutions

ICIMOD’s Community Based Flood Early Warning system (CB-FEWS) has received the Momentum of Change award under the ICT Solutions category, which recognizes climate actions based on innovative use of information and communication technology. CB-FEWS is a great example of how ICT can be used to help communities cope with the effects of climate change. The project is being implemented in the catchments of two rivers, the Jiadhal in Dhemaji District and the Singora in Lakhimpur District, in the Eastern Brahmaputra River Basin (EBRB), in partnership with Aaranyak, India and Sustainable Eco Engineering, Nepal under the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP)
