Gestion des risques climatiques – Des voies prometteuses pour éviter les pertes et préjudices, les réduire au minimum et y remédier

Le cadre de GRC du PM P&P (voir Figure 1) est une approche itérative, fondée sur le risque, de gestion des risques liés au climat, qui tient compte des aspects sociaux, économiques, non économiques, institutionnels, biophysiques et environnementaux. Il considère les mesures liées à l’atténuation, à l’adaptation au changement climatique, à la réduction des risques de catastrophes, au financement des risques et à l’assurance risques comme des éléments complémentaires d’une même boîte à outils. Afin de disposer de l’ensemble le plus efficace de mesures pour une situation donnée, il associe des mesures éprouvées à des instruments innovants et des approches transformationnelles, de manière globale et intégrée. 

Climate Risk Management – Promising pathways to avert, minimise and address losses and damages [infosheet]

This factsheet summarises the findings of our study of the same name and gives a brief overview on the GP L&D’s CRM framework. Our CRM framework is a risk-based, iterative approach to managing climate-related risks, taking into consideration social, economic, non-economic, institutional, biophysical and environmental aspects. It understands measures related to mitigation, climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, and risk finance and insurance as complementary parts of the same toolbox. In order to attain the smartest mix of measures for a given situation, it links tried-and-tested measures with innovative instruments and transformational approaches in a comprehensive and integrated way. 

Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage associated with Climate Change Impacts – Significance for development cooperation

This factsheet provides you with important background information about the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage associated with Climate Change Impacts (WIM), its five-year rolling workplan and expert groups as well as its significance for (German) development cooperation and exemplary measures for dealing with climate-induced losses and damages. 


Climate Risk Analysis for Identifying and Weighing Adaptation Strategies for the Agricultural Sector in Northern Ghana – A Study at District Level in the Upper West Region

The study focuses on evolving trends for temperature and precipitation, future water availability and the suitability to grow crops in three Ghanaian districts in the Upper West Region: Lawra, Sissala East and Wa West. Climate change is already affecting the agricultural sector in northern Ghana and its impacts will continue to increase in the future. This puts livelihoods and economic growth at risk and shows the urgent need for effective adaptation strategies. The aim of the study is to provide a comprehensive climate risk analysis that can guide adaptation planning at the district level.

The ocean in a changing climate: Rapidly growing risk of loss and damage?

Cover of the report of the expert dialogue 'The ocean in a changing climate: Rapidly growing risks of loss and damage?'

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.

Assessment of climate-related risks. A 6-step methodology

The 6-step climate risk assessment (CRA) methodology provides practitioners and decision-makers with a guidance on how to assess climate-related risks and how to translate the assessment into measures. Main characteristics of the methodology include the participation of all stakeholders, the assessment of hazards along the entire spectrum from slow onset processes to extreme weather events, the consideration of non-economic losses and damages as well as the focus on risk tolerance levels. It aims at identifying a smart mix of climate risk management measures, combining proven instruments from climate change adaptation and disaster risk management with innovative instruments to address residual risks which cannot be averted. As such, CRA can support evidence-based and risk-informed decision making and planning in the context of climate change.

Addressing climate change together – Tree planting activities at four secondary schools in northern Lao PDR

Accompanying the expert conference “Building Climate Resilience – How can comprehensive climate risk management avert, minimise and address losses and damages?” that was held in Lao PDR in late November 2019, the GP Risk Assessment and Management initiated tree planting activities at four local schools in rural Lao PDR that are implemented under the Village Forest Management Component of the CliPAD programme.
