Green Recovery for Practitioners: Setting the Course Towards a Sustainable, Inclusive and Resilient Transformation

Green recovery is a widely used term for packages of measures addressing the social, economic and political consequences of the Covid-19 crisis in a way that sets the course for a shift towards sustainable and inclusive development, biodiversity protection, resilience and climate neutrality. This paper provides a practical framework that captures the key elements of a green recovery to inform the work of practitioners who seek to support sustainable, inclusive, and resilient recoveries.

A New Narrative of Resilient and Climate Smart Societies – Aligning Adaptation, Mitigation and the SDGs

This strategy paper refines the findings made in the policy brief “Exploration of Adaptation-Mitigation Synergies”. There, the authors explained the necessity to link Adaptation and Mitigation for holistic climate action and resilience building with the help of the “Resilience Gap Model”. As a further development, this new paper introduced the “Adapted Resilience Gap Model”, which is meant to provide a conceptual point of departure for policymakers and stakeholders to contemplate on where and how climate action and sustainable development can be complementary or even synergistic.

Exploration of Adaptation – Mitigation Synergies

This overview brief explains mitigation and adaptation linkages by applying the Resilience Gap Model. The energy sector of Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS) has been chosen as an example to study the practical applicability of the model’s assumptions and predictions of the theoretical model.

Steering International Adaptation Finance Towards the Local Level

The provision of climate finance, especially for adaptation needs in vulnerable and local communities, is considered a key element and political goal in the international climate change space. In this paper, several key challenges and potential solutions for channeling money from the international to the local level have been identified and analysed.

Le Processus d’Approbation Simplifié du GCF : Expériences du Bénin et du Sénégal

Ce session en ligne est le huitième d’une série de sessions en ligne sur le processus de Plans Nationaux d’Adaptation (PNA) aux changements climatiques. Les sessions en ligne sont organisés dans le cadre du réseau d’échange des praticiens sur le processus PNA du « Projet d’Appui Scientifique aux processus de Plans Nationaux d’Adaptation (PNA) dans les pays francophones les moins avancés d’Afrique subsaharienne (PAS-PNA) ».

Intégration de l’adaptation aux changements climatiques dans la planification budgétaire

La question du financement de l’adaptation au changement climatique dans les pays moins avancés revêt une importance capitale dans les négociations internationales sur le climat. Ainsi à l’avènement du processus de plan National d’Adaptation le groupe des experts des PMA (LEG) a formulé des directives techniques servant d’orientation pour l’élaboration et la mise en œuvre dudit processus.
