Digital solutions for small-scale farming: Fostering climate resilient and low carbon agrifood systems
A brief on alignment between digital technology providers and small-scale farming. This complementary publication to the Overview brief presents in more detail the approach to assess and adopt digital technologies that support smallholder farming.
Gestión de riesgos climáticos – Trayectorias prometedoras para evitar, reducir al mínimo y afrontar las pérdidas y los daños
El marco de GRC del GP L&D es un enfoque iterativo basado en riesgos, dirigido a gestionar los riesgos climáticos considerando aspectos sociales, económicos, no económicos, institucionales, biofísicos y medioambientales. Este enfoque entiende las medidas de mitigación, adaptación al cambio climático y reducción del riesgo de desastres, así como la financiación y los seguros de riesgos, como partes complementarias de la misma caja de herramientas. A fin de obtener la combinación de medidas más inteligente posible para una situación dada, se enlazan de manera exhaustiva e integrada medidas avaladas en la práctica con instrumentos innovadores y enfoques transformadores.
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.
Agrifood systems play a crucial role in reducing hunger and poverty and providing a nutritious diet for all. However, in their current state, agrifood systems often do not function well and are the single largest driver of environmental degradation and transgression of planetary boundaries. Therefore, they are both a major cause of climate change and at the same time highly vulnerable to its impacts.
Digital tools provide the potential for transforming agrifood systems. From farm to fork digital technology has the potential to accelerate sustainable intensification of diversified production and healthy diets with a low carbon footprint.
This briefing, the first one of two, presents an overview for development cooperation practitioners on how to start a digital transformation in agrifood projects, especially with regard to climate resilience and GHG emission reductions.
In November 2020, the BMU-IKI funded and GIZ-implemented Global Project Mainstreaming EbA welcomed a group of over 200 Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) practitioners from 50 different countries to the 5th international EbA Community of Practice Workshop. The workshop took place in an entirely virtual format and aimed to create a space for exchange and mutual learning that fosters and improves the implementation of EbA during and beyond the ongoing pandemic. This Learning Brief offers insights into the discussions and findings of the event.
Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change – Implications of the COVID-19 Pandemic in the Eastern Caribbean
The Eastern Caribbean region is currently faced with a dilemma: On the one hand, the region is struggling with the management of the COVID-19 pandemic which has necessitated extended State of Emergency periods with established curfews and other measures to encourage people to stay home, practice social distancing and move as little as possible. Also, borders are largely closed, hence, the Free Movement of People Regime in the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) region is restricted due to COVID-19. These situations imply that people cannot move within the region and internal movements are also restricted. On the other hand, the OECS region is expecting an above-average active hurricane season which, based on past experience, might require people to move within their countries or across borders as a result of hurricanes or other climate-related events. These two different crises demand contrasting kinds of action: remaining versus moving.
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.
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.
This briefing guides its reader through the complex subject of Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) of Adaptation. It gives an overview about the benefits of investing in MEL and provides current challenges. It explains what you need to know about the debate on M&E and transparency under the Paris Agreement and Katowice and offers a rich list of further literature and practical solutions.
