This Briefing provides an introduction to climate change adaptation, its relevance for impact investors and how the issue can be addressed in investment strategies. The focus lies on investment opportunities in SMEs and growth stage companies in developing countries and emerging markets. At the same time, much of the analytical framework is applicable to developed markets as well, for example how to identify adaptation-relevant business models.
This PIEVC High Level Screening Guide (HLSG) is based on standard climate risk assessment methods and is part of the PIEVC Family of Ressources. The PIEVC HLSG process is an approach for undertaking vulnerability, risk, and resilience assessments. It is flexible enough to be applied to full assets or systems, to a single element of infrastructure, or to an entire portfolio of numerous assets. PIEVC HLSG assessments result in the characterization and ranking of climate risk scenarios and the identification of those scenarios of highest priority for adaptation planning or more comprehensive analysis. 
Part of the PIEVC Family of Resources, this manual provides guidance for infrastructure owners on how to use vulnerability and risk assessment to inform priority setting and managing climate resilience of a large portfolio of assets. It defines portfolio as a collection of infrastructre assets that are characterized by different climate vulnerabilities and risks.
The PIEVC Catalogue is designed to help decision-makers navigate through the different considerations and options for assessing climate change risk and resiliency using the PIEVC Family of Resources. The catalogue guides the users through the objective-setting process and based on their objectives, helps them choose the optimum assessment paths and tools.
Our planet faces multiple crises.  Covid-19 . Climate change and biodiversity loss will bring yet-unknown social, ecological and financial impacts. Worldwide degradation of ecosystems, for example, already undermines the well-being of at least 3.2 billion people and results in the loss of ecosystem services valued at about 10% of annual global GDP. Further reductions in biodiversity and ecosystem integrity will slow or reverse progress on many fronts – from food security to economic development – and will also hinder climate change adaptation and mitigation. This paper focuses on the national level and  argues that the update of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) – which often include new and ambitious efforts to adopt ecosystem-based approaches, also referred to as  nature-based solutions (NbS) – offers a window of opportunity to foster climate-biodiversity synergies.
L'étude se concentre sur l'évolution des tendances en matière de température et de précipitations, sur la disponibilité future de l'eau et sur l'aptitude du pays à cultiver des cultures dans différents scénarios d'émissions. Les projections de l'étude vont jusqu'en 2090, ce qui permet non seulement d'examiner les tendances à court terme (2030), mais aussi de prendre en compte les impacts du changement climatique à moyen (2050) et à long terme. En outre, l'étude entreprend une analyse coûts-bénéfices des actions d'adaptation sélectionnées, sur la base de laquelle des "business cases" pour l'adaptation peuvent être identifiés.
The study focuses on evolving trends for temperature and precipitation, future water availability and the country’s suitability to grow crops under different climate change scenarios. The study’s projections go up to 2090, offering opportunities not only to look into short-term trends (2030), but also to take into account medium (2050) and long-term climate change impacts. In addition, the study undertakes a cost-benefit analysis of selected adaptation actions on which basis “business cases” for adaptation can be identified.

When Metro Manila was placed on lockdown in face of the Covid-19 pandemic, a myriad of issues hurtled to the front of national focus, among them were migrant workers stranded in the country’s capital. In response, the Philippine government formulated the Balik Probinsya program to move individuals back to the provinces and decongest densely populated areas such as Metro Manila.  The Balik Probinsya program is a longterm program of the government intended for Metro Manila residents who want to return to their provinces “for good.” This paper is interested in determining the effects of this reverse migration on the rural areas and the loss of remittances from these returning migrants on the community of origin, especially any adaptation to climate change activities.
