Policy Advice for Climate-Resilient Economic Development (CRED) – Methods of assessing and planning climate-resilient economic development

The CRED Factsheet introduces in the IKI program Policy Advice for Climate-Resilient Economic Development. The factsheet explains the need to assess climate risks and improve adaptation measures. It illustrates the CRED approach in developing human and technical capacities in macro-economic modelling of climate risks in the economic and planning ministries in Kazakhstan, Vietnam and Georgia. This aims at central macro-economic strategies and policies, supporting the implementation of NDC goals and national adaptation plans (NAP).

Project Brief: Climate Resilient Economic Development (CRED) – Managing Economic Risks of Climate Change

The CRED Project Brief gives an overview in how to manage economic risks of climate change by macro-economic modelling. The Project Brief introduces the three macro-economic models applied in the three partner countries Kazakhstan, Vietnam and Georgia. It explains how these models support the countries and its political institutions in developing climate-sensitive development plans and economic development strategies by translating the modelling results in evidence-based country specific policies.

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.

Analyse des capacités nationales de planification de l’adaptation au Burkina Faso

Factsheet SNAP Burkina Faso

Le Burkina Faso a analysé l’évolution des capacités nationales en matière de planification de l’ACC. Les évaluations ont été faites sur deux années consécutives en se basant sur les sept facteurs de succès de l’outil SNAP -Stocktaking for National Adaptation Planning- ou « Etat des lieux pour la planification de l’adaptation au niveau national ».

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.
