NEW: CRA-Method Search Engine “CRAMSE”

The impacts associated with slow onset processes (e.g. sea level rise, desertification and extreme weather events (e.g. floods, cyclones, heatwaves) are increasing in frequency and intensity, resulting in growing climate-related risk. This highlights the urgent need for Climate Risk Assessments (CRA) which help to identify solutions for an effective management of risks. 

A plethora of CRA methods have been developed until now. However, not every method fits for every context. The newly launched CRA-Method Search Engine “CRAMSE” aims to support practitioners in identifying methods that fit best for their specific interests. It was developed by the BMZ commissioned the GIZ Global Programme on Risk Assessment and Management for Adaptation to Climate Change (Loss and Damage) and builds on a database encompassing more than 120 CRA methods. A wide range of filters, including hazards considered, economic sectors covered, or the inclusion of non-economic Loss and Damage (NELD) can be applied. 

You can access CRAMSE, here

We hope that CRAMSE supports you to use available resources in the most effective way for fostering resilience and managing climate impacts around the world!

New e-learning course on Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change

The newly developed eLearning course by GIZ in collaboration with UN University is now available! In this interactive self-paced course, policy makers, development professionals, researchers and students will learn how climate change influences human mobility. By introducing key concepts like climate related migration, disaster displacement, planned relocation and trapped populations, this training will build capacities needed to consider human mobility in the context of climate change (HMCCC) in your respective field of work. The training showcases diverse examples from different countries on the phenomena of HMCCC as well as options how to manage it.
