This Adaptation Briefing presents a compilation of selected knowledge products that have been funded by the GIZ “Support Project for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement (SPA)”. The SPA project strengthens several global initiatives and networks co-founded or financially supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) that enhance partner countries’ capacities to successfully implement their climate policies, reduce greenhouse gases, increase their adaptive capacities as well as communicate this transparently.
For the transition into a carbon-neutral economy Costa Rica launched in July 2018 an ambitious NAP towards a resilient and decarbonized development with a transformative vision. The fact that 34% of the hydrometeorological losses were related to the infrastructure sector, shed a light on the vulnerability to climate extreme events of this sector. Hence, climate risk management (CRM) for infrastructure has been mainstreamed into the NAP throughout two complementary axes.
This working paper is a first attempt to pull together current and emerging insights and raise awareness among climate practitioners and policy makers of the importance of systemic leadership as an approach for enhanced NDC implementation.
Working together for climate resilience – Challenges and success factors for collaboration between technical and financial partners in development cooperation
Acknowledging previous and on-going discussions on aid effectiveness, this working paper seeks to shed light on challenges and entry points for practical collaboration between technical and financial development partners in projects on the ground.
This paper is the second of the Adaptation Briefing series under the NDC Support Cluster, which aims to provide concise and easy to digest information on key topics, relevant for projects working on climate change adaptation.
This research review investigates and stimulates discussion on the technical and political economy issues with long-term mitigation and adaptation planning. It looks at the potential linkages between mitigation and adaptation in national and sector policy and planning and identifies priority areas for integration.
Alignment to Advance Climate-Resilient Development – Country Perspectives on Alignment of the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) (OVERVIEW BRIEF 3)
This is the third in a series of briefs by the NAP Global Network focusing on alignment of country efforts under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
This learning brief is a result of the 4th international EbA Community of Practice Workshop that was conducted by GIZ between 11 and 14 June 2019 at UNU-EHS in Bonn, Germany.
This policy brief by GIZ argues that implementing and strengthening a multi-level governance approach is key to delivering climate resilience and hence to fulfill the adaptation commitments set in the NDCs.
Based on this study, WWF US has developed five recommendations to encourage Parties to enhance climate ambition through protected and conserved areas as they revise their NDCs for 2020 and beyond.
