Climate change and small-scale fisheries

The fisheries sector contributes significantly to income and food security for hundreds of millions of people, particularly in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and coastal Least Developed Countries (LDCs).

Ecosystem-based Adaptation and Insurance: Success, Challenges and Opportunities

Both Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) and Climate Risk Finance & Insurance (CRFI) can be used to enhance adaptation, reduce and transfer risk, and build resilience to the growing impacts from natural and human-made hazards. There is a nascent and growing interest in where these strategies may intersect and be mutually beneficial for adaptation. The GIZ joint publication by the Global Project Mainstreaming EbA, the InsuResilience Secretariat and ACRI+ is available now.

The Roles of the Private Sector in Climate Change Adaptation – an Introduction

This introduction shows that companies of any size, private associations and cooperatives, banks and investors as well as insurance companies can play three different roles in and for adaptation. They can adapt to climate change, finance climate adaptation of others and support others through products and services for resilience.

Contribution du secteur privé à l’adaptation aux changements climatiques

Ce session en ligne est le dixième d’une série de sessions en ligne sur le processus de Plans Nationaux d’Adaptation (PNA) aux changements climatiques. Les sessions en ligne sont organisés dans le cadre du réseau d’échange des praticiens sur le processus PNA du « Projet d’Appui Scientifique aux processus de Plans Nationaux d’Adaptation (PNA) dans les pays francophones les moins avancés d’Afrique subsaharienne (PAS-PNA) ».

Study on Engaging the Private Sector in National Adaptation Planning Processes

Adapting to the impacts of climate change, whether at the national, sub-national or community level, is not the responsibility of national governments alone. It requires the coordinated input of multiple stakeholders, including local authorities, development partners, communities and civil society. This study aims to offer guidance to governments and their partners on how to engage the private sector in the NAP process.

Adapting to Climate Change: Methods and Tools for Climate Risk Management.

This guidebook seeks to provide organitzizations with the information they need in order to understand the range of issues involved in adaptation, and to help them make informed decisions about how they may make progress with adaptation planning in practice. It explains why adaptation is climate risk management and provides a comprehensive overview of methods and tools for climate risk assessment.
