This factsheet provides an overview of scenario planning as an approach to deal with migration, displacement and planned relocation in the context of climate change. Scenario planning is a method that involves a wide range of stakeholders and serves as a tool for developing a range of future scenarios based on multiple factors and influences. The Global Programme Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH has successfully applied scenario planning methods with its partners in the Caribbean, Pacific and the Philippines. In this context, valuable insights and important options for action could be identified.
The Lead the Change Programme is a product of the Regional Project on Ecosystem-based Adaptation to Climate Change in the high mountainous region of Central Asia, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) through the International Climate Initiative (IKI). This document synthesizes the learnings from a Leadership Programme conducted in 2017. Its aim is to provide inspiration and practical guidance on how to develop and manage a cross-sectoral leadership development programme in the context of sustainability. It is written for commissioning organisations as well as programme managers and facilitators designing such programmes. Whilst it outlines the concept, methodological approach and design of the programme, it is however not a facilitation guide, but rather works in conjunction with related documents such as the AIZ’s Toolbox Leadership for Global Responsibility and assumes proficiency of the facilitators in the faculties and methodologies outlined.
This study explores how the two leading approaches in water resources management and ecosystem thinking for climate change adaptation – i.e. IWRM and EbA – can be merged to achieve greater climate resilience in watersheds. It entails a conceptual analysis of both approaches and showcases nine practical implementation examples of integrated EbA-IWRM projects around the world. The case studies reveal structural similarities, key lessons, and enabling and inhibiting factors for integrated EbA-IWRM approaches. From this, the study derives and promotes a set of guiding principles for integrated EbA-IWRM projects.
Green recovery is a widely used term for packages of measures addressing the social, economic and political consequences of the Covid-19 crisis in a way that sets the course for a shift towards sustainable and inclusive development, biodiversity protection, resilience and climate neutrality. This paper provides a practical framework that captures the key elements of a green recovery to inform the work of practitioners who seek to support sustainable, inclusive, and resilient recoveries.
Bien que les effets du changement climatique sur la propagation des maladies à transmission vectorielle, hydrique et infectieuse soient bien établis ailleurs, le Togo ne disposait pas encore d’une évaluation concluante de sa vulnérabilité. En 2019, le ministère de la Santé et de l’Hygiène publique, avec le soutien du projet ProSanté de la GIZ, a analysé les impacts des risques climatiques sur le risque de paludisme, de méningite et d’infections respiratoires.

Although the effects of climate change on the spread of vector-borne, water-borne and infectious diseases are well established elsewhere, Togo was yet missing a conclusive vulnerability assessment. In 2019, the Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene with support of the GIZ-Project ProSanté analysed the impacts of climate hazards on the risk of malaria, meningitis and acute respiratory infections.

This report provides an overview of how human mobility in the context of climate change (HMCCC) fits into the policy landscape of nine island and archipelagic countries: Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, and St. Lucia in the Eastern Caribbean; Fiji, Kiribati, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu in the South Pacific; and the Philippines in the Western Pacific. All of these nations are heavily affected by climate impacts like sea level rise, ocean acidification, tropical cyclones and hydrological extremes.

This Adaptation Briefing presents a compilation of selected knowledge products that have been funded by the GIZ “Support Project for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement (SPA)”. The SPA project strengthens several global initiatives and networks co-founded or financially supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) that enhance partner countries’ capacities to successfully implement their climate policies, reduce greenhouse gases, increase their adaptive capacities as well as communicate this transparently.
This report reviews the interlinkages between climate change and labor with a special focus on the SSA region. The first objective is to synthesize how climate change would impact labor productivity, employment and migration both directly and indirectly. The second objective is to highlight how policy responses would contribute to maintain employment in the face of climate change.
For the transition into a carbon-neutral economy Costa Rica launched in July 2018 an ambitious NAP towards a resilient and decarbonized development with a transformative vision. The fact that 34% of the hydrometeorological losses were related to the infrastructure sector, shed a light on the vulnerability to climate extreme events of this sector. Hence, climate risk management (CRM) for infrastructure has been mainstreamed into the NAP throughout two complementary axes.
This factsheet provides insights into the different forms of human mobility – migration, displacement and planned relocation – and its multiple drivers that result in a person´s decision to migrate or stay in the face of extreme weather events and gradual changes in the environment. It presents how GIZ´s Global Programme “Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change” (GP HMCCC) improves applied knowledge on climate-induced migration and how it supports national and regional partners, non-governmental organisations and universities to discuss and deal with the resulting challenges in its project regions.
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 briefing guides its reader through the complex subject of Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) of Adaptation. It gives an overview about the benefits of investing in MEL and provides current challenges. It explains what you need to know about the debate on M&E and transparency under the Paris Agreement and Katowice and offers a rich list of further literature and practical solutions.
An infrastructure-oriented climate risk assessment was piloted for the planned Cai Lon – Cai Be sluice gate system project in the Mekong Delta– an infrastructure investment by the Government of Vietnam with an estimated budget of USD 145 million, starting from 2018 until 2021 with a significant function to prevent salt water intrusion, especially with regards to higher probabilities of severe droughts.
To facilitate and streamline the replica of the Cai Lon-Cai Be sluice gate climate risk assessment in Vietnam, this document provides a detail description of the kind of services needed. Based on the structure of a typical recipe, the provided services are divided in three components; procedure, quantity and costs.
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.
The brief for policy makers has been developed based on information and findings of the study “Common Ground between the Paris Agreement and the Sendai Framework: Climate Change adaptation and disaster risk reduction” which was prepared by OECD for the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Further information can be found in the full report.
In a nutshell, the report provides decision-makers with necessary information to adopt adaptation measurements towards the maintenance and operation of a climate-resilient bridge. Of equal importance is the development of capacities among as well as the mainstream of the approach. Lastly, the assessment has incentivised to develop of a climate risk assessment tool tailor-made to the Costa Rican context.
This document provides an overview of how Fiji, a Pacific Island country affected by climate change, has responded nationally to international and regional frameworks and guidelines on adaptation and human mobility in the context of climate change. It covers, inter alia, how Fiji developed its Planned Relocation Guidelines – A framework to undertake climate change related relocation, the first to ever be developed in the Pacific Islands.
