Training Course “L&D as part of comprehensive climate risk management”

The training course “Dealing with climate-related loss and damage as part of comprehensive climate risk management” provides explanations about concepts, approaches and measures to avert, minimize and address Loss and Damage – based on GIZ’s own experience and that of others, enabling our partners to take action. This training course serves as a tool to build technical capacities and initiate dialogue among partners working on the issue, in various communities (climate, disaster, development etc.), in different sectors and at various levels. It targets technical staff of institutions and decision-makers in partner countries.

  • Module II: International Policy
  • Module III: Dealing with L&D as part of comprehensive climate risk management
    1. Introduction
    2. Assessing climate risk and L&D
    3. Identification of options

Public Infrastructure Climate Risk Assessment

How to assess infrastructure climate risks? This training course for practitioners and decision makers raises awareness about the specific requirements to assess climate risks of infrastructure. Whereby, many climate risk assessments focus on larger spatial scales and entities, the system of interest for infrastructure climate risk assessment is at the object level and its assets. Moreover, the methodology developed by Engineers Canada and their Public Infrastructure Vulnerability Commitee (PIEVC), is working with infrastructure specifc impact thresholds for specific important climate parameters that are translated into climate indices projected into the future according to the life-cycle of the infrastructure.
