The 6-step climate risk assessment (CRA) methodology provides practitioners and decision-makers with a guidance on how to assess climate-related risks and how to translate the assessment into measures. Main characteristics of the methodology include the participation of all stakeholders, the assessment of hazards along the entire spectrum from slow onset processes to extreme weather events, the consideration of non-economic losses and damages as well as the focus on risk tolerance levels. It aims at identifying a smart mix of climate risk management measures, combining proven instruments from climate change adaptation and disaster risk management with innovative instruments to address residual risks which cannot be averted. As such, CRA can support evidence-based and risk-informed decision making and planning in the context of climate change.
This guidance note provides the background on the methodological approach to development the database for climate risk assessment methods – CRAME.
La Guía para Monitoreo y Evaluación de Intervenciones de Adaptación basada en Ecosistemas proporciona
una descripción del proceso necesario para diseñar e implementar un Monitoreo y Evaluación
(M&E) eficaz de la Adaptación basada en Ecosistemas (AbE).
This guidance builds on the already widely used Conservation Measures Partnership’s Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation (Conservation Standards). The Conservation Standards, first developed in 2004, represent the leading adaptive management framework in the field of biodiversity conservation and ecosystem management. Thousands of conservation practitioners around the globe have used them to plan, manage, monitor, adapt and learn from their projects and programs.
This is a practical guide for planners and practitioners to better understand the outcomes and impacts of on-the-ground Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) projects, working with and enhancing nature to reduce the negative impacts of climate change on people.

Human Mobility, Climate Change and Gender: Compendium of Best Practices, Lessons Learnt and Tools for Pacific Practitioners
This compendium on Human Mobility, Climate Change and Gender provides best practices, lessons learned and tools for Pacific practitioners and was developed as an additional module of the Pacific Gender & Climate Change Toolkit for Practitioners.
Framing and Tracking 21st Century Climate Adaptation: Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning for Paris, the SDGs and Beyond
The Paris Agreement frames adaptation in terms of the actions needed to address the impacts of a global warming of 1.5–2°C. However, current trends suggest that warming is likely to exceed 2° degrees by the middle of the 21st century, which makes incremental approaches beyond 2030 necessary.
'Climate Risk Assessment for Ecosystem-based Adaptation – a guidebook for planners and practitioners' in Russian
The EbA Climate Risk Assessment Guidebook is now also available in Russian! The guidebook, developed by GIZ in collaboration with Eurac Research and United Nations University – Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), helps planners and practitioners in designing and implementing climate risk assessments in the context of Ecosystem-based Adaptation projects.
