This report summarizes an online four-day Training of Trainers (ToT) session in June that aimed to build capacity of border officials to address disaster displacement situations. The ToT is the 2nd phase of training which follows the first virtual delivery to border officials across the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) in June 2020.
The purpose of this report is twofold: to illustrate the importance of integrating gender considerations in EbA actions and to provide concrete examples of how this can be done in practice. It is designed for EbA practitioners and adaptation policy-makers, including government decision-makers and technical support staff, civil society organisations, private sector enterprises, and research institutions.
This report from the publication series 'Green Recovery for Practitioners' presents a compilation of 23 examples that show how communities, cities and countries have implemented the idea of a green recovery. Covering a wide range of sectors, entry levels and approaches, it draws upon measures and instruments that have been deployed in more than 20 countries, particularly in developing and emerging economies. Each example reflects on the actors involved, the progress made and the lessons learned so far.
The Eastern Caribbean region is currently faced with a dilemma: On the one hand, the region is struggling with the management of the COVID-19 pandemic which has necessitated extended State of Emergency periods with established curfews and other measures to encourage people to stay home, practice social distancing and move as little as possible. Also, borders are largely closed, hence, the Free Movement of People Regime in the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) region is restricted due to COVID-19. These situations imply that people cannot move within the region and internal movements are also restricted. On the other hand, the OECS region is expecting an above-average active hurricane season which, based on past experience, might require people to move within their countries or across borders as a result of hurricanes or other climate-related events. These two different crises demand contrasting kinds of action: remaining versus moving.
The CRED Practitioner's Guide offers a framework to help economic advisers in central and sectoral government ministries to integrate climate economic modelling results in economic development processes, with the ultimate objective to support climate-resilient economic development. The guide describes various opportunities to integrate climate modelling results along all steps of the economic development policy cycle, from planning to budgeting and financing, implementation, and monitoring, evaluation, and learning.
With a particular focus on the role of development cooperation, impacts of climate change on the ocean and coastal zones were discussed during the expert dialogue ‘The ocean in a changing climate: Rapidly growing risk of loss and damage?’ hosted by GIZ Global Programme on Risk Assessment and Manage­ment for Adaptation to Climate Change (Loss & Damage) in January 2021. Key insights from the event are presented in this report.
La relance verte est un terme largement utilisé pour désigner les trains de mesures visant à pallier les conséquences sociales, économiques et politiques de la crise de COVID-19 d’une manière qui ouvre la voie à des réformes structurelles à long terme et à un changement de cap vers la durabilité, la protection de la biodiversité, la résilien¬ce et la neutralité climatique. Elle peut être réalisée par le biais de diverses institutions et approches juridiques et politiques, notamment en s’appuyant sur les outils existants mis au point dans le cadre des approches établies de l’économie verte.
Understaning and explaining what Ecosystem-based Adaptation is can be tricky. This new facthseet developed by the Global project Mainstreaming EbA provides you with a brief overview and a simple visualization to help make the term EbA more clear. It also relates EbA to the now often discussed term 'Nature-based Solutions' and thereby offers an easy to remember bridge to avoid confusion.
