“Reducing Climate Related Hazards by Upgrading the Physical Environment of a Primary School” - Additional Request
In order to achieve the first outcome of reducing the risks of landslide and rate of soil erosion, retaining walls totaling 370m2 were to be built and stairways covering 250m2 were to be renovated during the project. By December 2014, 324.15 m2 of retaining wall had been built. A stone faced wall of 70m2 was not built, due to lack of funds. Permission was obtained to build a smaller wall of 20m2 instead. Works on renovating the staircases had not started primarily due to lack of funds. Therefore, in order to achieve this outcome, additional funds are needed.

Furthermore, in order to increase awareness about climate change, 2 sensitization campaigns were to be completed. These were completed in January 2013 and February 2014. In total, 175 persons (in addition to the school population of 420) were sensitized.

During the sensitization campaign held in February 2014, the perceived effectiveness of the project to achieve desired outcomes was evaluated. The project, at that point was perceived as being close to being successful in protecting resources as well as being effective in reducing risk and vulnerability.

The areas at the top of each retaining wall were to be rehabilitated to improve land use. Endemic trees were planted and a mosaiculture was created on the terraces. The area was also fenced for safety. By rehabilitating the flat area at the top of each retaining wall, the surface area under planned use was increased as intended, although only about 160m2 instead of 200m2 was achieved. The remaining 40m2 may be rehabilitated once the additional retaining wall of 70m2 is built.

A fourth anticipated outcome of the project was to create livelihood and generate income: throughout the duration of the project, 10-30 people were directly obtaining incomes through the project and 3-5 companies obtained revenues indirectly from the project.

Therefore, in order to achieve all the outcomes of the project, an additional 70m2 of retaining wall needs to be built, 40m2 of land needs to be rehabilitated, and 250m2 of staircases need to be renovated. These outputs have not yet been not completed primarily due to lack of funds.
