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.
This report explores challenges and action areas for advancing green fiscal policies – in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond. It assesses the fiscal response to the pandemic and looks at examples and practical steps for (1) reforming fiscal rules (2) establishing green public financial management, (3) introducing carbon pricing, and (4) developing capacities and networks to integrate recovery efforts across fiscal and environmental spheres. 
The climate-migration nexus has been attracting increasing scholarly attention in the last decades. The various manifestations of climate change including extreme events that are expected to get more frequent and more intense, and slow-onset changes that increasingly affect livelihoods in a context of international climate coordination failure add fuel to the fire. Countries in South-East Asia are among the most vulnerable to climate change, and future climate scenarios predict increases in multiple indicators, including temperatures, annual precipitation, number of consecutive too wet and dry days, among others. Understanding how these changes may shape human mobility is key to effective policy design to protect livelihoods and establish migration as a choice rather than necessity. This report contributes to the discourse on climate change and internal migration linkages in the Philippines by analysing data from the latest census available, building upon a large set of climate change indicators and by identifying policy entry points at different levels.
Planned relocation is used as an adaptation and risk reduction strategy for communities or groups of households exposed to hazards, disasters and climate change. Yet little is known about the diversity in spatial patterns of planned relocation cases. This narrative and visual compilation of nine case studies derived from a global mapping by the Platform on Disaster Displacement (PDD) sheds light on the spatial complexity of planned relocation. It offers preliminary insights for policy and practice on characteristics, approaches to implementation and associated challenges.
Across Asia, disasters and climate change impacts have had, and will continue to have, profound effects on people and the places they call home. Building on a global mapping by the Platform on Disaster Displacement (PDD), this snapshot draws on cases identified in Asia to shine a spotlight on notable characteristics and insights that emerge in this regional context.
Facing the impacts and risks of climate change and disasters, communities and authorities in the Pacific region have initiated planned relocation of people out of harm’s way. Building on a global mapping by the Platform on Disaster Displacement (PDD), this snapshot draws on cases identified in the Pacific region and offers insights on regional specific features of planned relocation.
This publication builds on the landmark 2018 Groundswell report to examine climate-induced migration in the Lake Victoria Basin to inform policy makers and practitioners about the urgency for near- and farsighted planning, policy, and action as an integral part of the development response. This report uses a quantitative and qualitative understanding of plausible future climate migration scenarios and proposes core policy direction and domains for action to better anticipate and prepare for the issue. It also provides strategic policy responses to guide countries in the Lake Victoria Basin to better anticipate and prepare for the expected 16.6 - 38.5 million internal climate migrants in the Victoria Basin countries by 2020.
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. 
This factsheet provides you with important background information about the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage associated with Climate Change Impacts (WIM), its five-year rolling workplan and expert groups as well as its significance for (German) development cooperation and exemplary measures for dealing with climate-induced losses and damages.   
Agrifood systems play a crucial role in reducing hunger and poverty and providing a nutritious diet for all. However, in their current state, agrifood systems often do not function well and are the single largest driver of environmental degradation and transgression of planetary boundaries. Therefore, they are both a major cause of climate change and at the same time highly vulnerable to its impacts. Digital tools provide the potential for transforming agrifood systems. From farm to fork digital technology has the potential to accelerate sustainable intensification of diversified production and healthy diets with a low carbon footprint. This briefing, the first one of two, presents an overview for development cooperation practitioners on how to start a digital transformation in agrifood projects, especially with regard to climate resilience and GHG emission reductions.
The study focuses on evolving trends for temperature and precipitation, future water availability and the suitability to grow crops in three Ghanaian districts in the Upper West Region: Lawra, Sissala East and Wa West. Climate change is already affecting the agricultural sector in northern Ghana and its impacts will continue to increase in the future. This puts livelihoods and economic growth at risk and shows the urgent need for effective adaptation strategies. The aim of the study is to provide a comprehensive climate risk analysis that can guide adaptation planning at the district level.
