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 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.
This factsheet provides an introduction to the topic of HMCCC and gives an overview of relevant international policy frameworks. It looks at the partner regions and activities of the Global Programme on Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change (GP HMCCC), implemented by GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
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.
This strategy paper refines the findings made in the policy brief “Exploration of Adaptation-Mitigation Synergies”. There, the authors explained the necessity to link Adaptation and Mitigation for holistic climate action and resilience building with the help of the “Resilience Gap Model”. As a further development, this new paper introduced the “Adapted Resilience Gap Model”, which is meant to provide a conceptual point of departure for policymakers and stakeholders to contemplate on where and how climate action and sustainable development can be complementary or even synergistic.
Ce guide pratique vise à présenter les approches utilisées par Climate Analytics dans le cadre du PAS-PNA (co-développement des méthodes et renforcement des capacités) ; à partager les leçons apprises et identifier les pratiques qui fonctionnent bien ; et à fournir un cadre de référence qui puisse permettre aux acteurs/parties-prenantes de reproduire les études de vulnérabilité à travers une approche de renforcement de capacité et en utilisant une méthodologie robuste.
Le processus d’élaboration des Notes Conceptuelles des idées de projet d’adaptation a été initié dans le cadre de la mise en oeuvre de la composante 3 (Facilitation de l’accès au financement) du Projet d’Appui Scientifique aux processus de Plans Nationaux d’Adaptation (PAS-PNA). Les idées de projet ont été identifiées au Bénin suite à un concours d’idées organisé dans le cadre du partenariat avec le Fonds National pour l’Environnement et le Climat (FNEC). A l’issue dudit concours, deux idées de projet ont été retenues, à savoir un projet dans le secteur de l’agriculture et un second dans le secteur de la santé.
Esta visión general de la investigación resume los mensajes clave obtenidos de un estudio de caso sobre AbE en los Andes peruanos durante el proyecto AbE Montaña en Miraflores, que tenía como objetivo mejorar la gestión de los recursos naturales en los pastos y humedales locales de montaña con un enfoque en organización comunitaria. La autora muestra cómo se pueden utilizar varios indicadores y marcos de monitoreo para mostrar la eficacia de AbE.
This factsheet is supplement to the “Climate risk analysis for identifying and weighing adaptation strategies in Ghana’s agricultural sector” which was prepared by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) for the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
