The process set forth by the PIEVC Green Protocol is designed to aid practitioners in characterizing the risk of the infrastructure due to climate change while considering the influence of the broader social-ecological system, and potential subsequent impacts to the social-ecological system should the infrastructure be disrupted or damaged. Climate risk assessment is within a broader context of climate proofing (a methodological approach aimed at incorporating climate change into project planning and development).
This PIEVC High Level Screening Guide (HLSG) is based on standard climate risk assessment methods and is part of the PIEVC Family of Ressources. The PIEVC HLSG process is an approach for undertaking vulnerability, risk, and resilience assessments. It is flexible enough to be applied to full assets or systems, to a single element of infrastructure, or to an entire portfolio of numerous assets. PIEVC HLSG assessments result in the characterization and ranking of climate risk scenarios and the identification of those scenarios of highest priority for adaptation planning or more comprehensive analysis. 
Part of the PIEVC Family of Resources, this manual provides guidance for infrastructure owners on how to use vulnerability and risk assessment to inform priority setting and managing climate resilience of a large portfolio of assets. It defines portfolio as a collection of infrastructre assets that are characterized by different climate vulnerabilities and risks.
The PIEVC Catalogue is designed to help decision-makers navigate through the different considerations and options for assessing climate change risk and resiliency using the PIEVC Family of Resources. The catalogue guides the users through the objective-setting process and based on their objectives, helps them choose the optimum assessment paths and tools.
L'étude se concentre sur l'évolution des tendances en matière de température et de précipitations, sur la disponibilité future de l'eau et sur l'aptitude du pays à cultiver des cultures dans différents scénarios d'émissions. Les projections de l'étude vont jusqu'en 2090, ce qui permet non seulement d'examiner les tendances à court terme (2030), mais aussi de prendre en compte les impacts du changement climatique à moyen (2050) et à long terme. En outre, l'étude entreprend une analyse coûts-bénéfices des actions d'adaptation sélectionnées, sur la base de laquelle des "business cases" pour l'adaptation peuvent être identifiés.
The study focuses on evolving trends for temperature and precipitation, future water availability and the country’s suitability to grow crops under different climate change scenarios. The study’s projections go up to 2090, offering opportunities not only to look into short-term trends (2030), but also to take into account medium (2050) and long-term climate change impacts. In addition, the study undertakes a cost-benefit analysis of selected adaptation actions on which basis “business cases” for adaptation can be identified.

Based on a database that also builds the foundation of the search engine CRAMSE, this study aims to increase the understanding of recent innovations, and of remaining methodological challenges to future innovation in climate risk assessments. Six dimensions relevant to the challenges of CRAs in the context of climate-related losses and damages are evaluated in detail, ideally benefiting decision makers’ selection of suitable methods and practitioners’ efforts to further develop future methods and approaches.
Building on existing literature, investigations, and available project information, this reflection paper attempts a better understanding of how a comprehensive CRM can positively contribute to specific SDGs, adding value to ongoing discussions by examining both existing and potential synergies between CRM measures and the SDGs. Multiple synergies between CRM and the SDGs are identified; while CRM aims at fostering a holistic understanding and consideration of past and future climate change impacts in all affected sectors as well as needs and opportunities to manage possible losses and damages, sustainable development itself contributes to strengthened climate resilience.

This factsheet summarises the findings of the study. The Caribbean is extensively exposed to disasters caused by natural events. Especially, increasing tropical cyclone intensities pose a key coastal and ocean climate change risk. This study offers insights into coastal risks in the Caribbean and identifies trends of adaptation options and their effectiveness to reduce economic damages. With the approach designed in this study, it could be shown that trends of averted (economic) damages can be calculated with CLIMADA, supporting the selection processes of an effective mix of measures for climate risk management.
The study region of the Caribbean is extensively exposed to disasters caused by natural events. Especially, increasing tropical cyclone intensities pose a key coastal and ocean risk to Caribbean LDCs and SIDS. This study offers insights into coastal risks in the Caribbean and identifies trends of adaptation options and their effectiveness to reduce economic damages. With the approach designed in this study, it could be shown that trends of averted (economic) damages can be calculated with CLIMADA, supporting the selection processes of an effective mix of measures for climate risk management.
While extreme weather events (EWE) have been given due prominence in risk management, slow-onset processes (SOP) such as sea level rise or desertification have so far been less well considered. This working paper lays out definitions, key challenges, and opportunities for understanding risk and generating resilience to SOP. It describes a Climate Risk Management framework developed for this purpose, and sets out key areas for collaboration across research and develop¬ment cooperation.
This concept paper introduces and explains the GP L&D’s Climate Risk Management (CRM) framework to avert, minimise, and address climate-related losses and damages in the most comprehensive way. It provides detailed information on the different steps of CRM, from risk assessment to the identification of a context-specific, complementary mix of measures as well as monitoring and evaluation and continuous learning.
El marco de GRC del GP L&D es un enfoque iterativo basado en riesgos, dirigido a gestionar los riesgos climáticos considerando aspectos sociales, económicos, no económicos, institucionales, biofísicos y medioambientales. Este enfoque entiende las medidas de mitigación, adaptación al cambio climático y reducción del riesgo de desastres, así como la financiación y los seguros de riesgos, como partes complementarias de la misma caja de herramientas. A fin de obtener la combinación de medidas más inteligente posible para una situación dada, se enlazan de manera exhaustiva e integrada medidas avaladas en la práctica con instrumentos innovadores y enfoques transformadores. 
Le cadre de GRC du PM P&P (voir Figure 1) est une approche itérative, fondée sur le risque, de gestion des risques liés au climat, qui tient compte des aspects sociaux, économiques, non économiques, institutionnels, biophysiques et environnementaux. Il considère les mesures liées à l’atténuation, à l’adaptation au changement climatique, à la réduction des risques de catastrophes, au financement des risques et à l’assurance risques comme des éléments complémentaires d’une même boîte à outils. Afin de disposer de l’ensemble le plus efficace de mesures pour une situation donnée, il associe des mesures éprouvées à des instruments innovants et des approches transformationnelles, de manière globale et intégrée. 
This factsheet summarises the findings of our study of the same name and gives a brief overview on the GP L&D’s CRM framework. Our CRM framework is a risk-based, iterative approach to managing climate-related risks, taking into consideration social, economic, non-economic, institutional, biophysical and environmental aspects. It understands measures related to mitigation, climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, and risk finance and insurance as complementary parts of the same toolbox. In order to attain the smartest mix of measures for a given situation, it links tried-and-tested measures with innovative instruments and transformational approaches in a comprehensive and integrated way.
