Infrastructure for Climate Resilient Growth (ICRG) is a £25 million technical assistance (TA) programme, delivered in partnership with the Ministry of Rural Development (MORD), Government of India (GOI). The programme also contributes to the UK’s climate commitment under the International Climate Fund (ICF), with 100% of the budget tagged as ICF. ICRG aims to improve abilities of poor and vulnerable people to cope with climate change impacts by integrating climate information services and risk management into India’s social protection framework. The ICRG Programme implemented by PHIA with support from FCDO has two distinct components. As its first component it responds to the issues of community distress due to COVID 19 pandemic by linking them to various social protection measures and also strengthening awareness on COVID 19 related actions and behaviours. The second component focuses on climate resilience works and enhancing capacities of the communities in planning and implementing such works including green livelihood options.
