Comprehensive Climate Risk Management – Promising pathways to avert, minimise and address Loss and Damage

Comprehensive Climate Risk Management (CRM) is an approach that aims to manage risk along the entire risk continuum, from short-term extreme weather events such as storms and floods to long-term gradual changes such as sea level rise and desertification. Instead of applying individual and standalone measures, it involves a combination of proven and innovative instruments that enlarges our understanding of adaptation as integrated, participatory and iterative approach to manage climate-related risk.

This info sheet introduces GIZs risk-based approach to manage Loss & Damage. By analysing risks and identifying suitable solutions on a technical level, this approach supports decision makers from the public and private sector in forward-looking planning.
