Guidance note on database of climate risk assessment methods

This guidance note provides the background on the methodological approach to development the database for climate risk assessment methods – CRAME.

The database in its final form shall help decision makers to identify suitable methods according to their context and specific criteria. In a first step, it will be made available for GIZ colleagues which can use the provided filtering functions or the search function in order to identify methods corresponding to their field of interest.

The database represents a content analysis and is partially based on subjective judgment. Lastly it shall be noted that this database does not intend to ‘evaluate’ the quality of the different methods or to establish a ranking. The investigation simply follows the objective of cataloguing existing methods in the context of climate risk management and providing the findings in a table based on established criteria.
