Home Lands: Island and Archipelagic States’ Policymaking for Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change
This report provides an overview of how human mobility in the context of climate change (HMCCC) fits into the policy landscape of nine island and archipelagic countries: Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, and St. Lucia in the Eastern Caribbean; Fiji, Kiribati, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu in the South Pacific; and the Philippines in the Western Pacific. All of these nations are heavily affected by climate impacts like sea level rise, ocean acidification, tropical cyclones and hydrological extremes.
The 6th EbA Knowledge Day – organized by GIZ and IUCN under the Friends of EbA (FEBA) network – took place on June 8th and was themed “Maximizing the potential of EbA: bridging the gap between climate change and biodiversity agendas.”
This report reviews the interlinkages between climate change and labor with a special focus on the SSA region. The first objective is to synthesize how climate change would impact labor productivity, employment and migration both directly and indirectly. The second objective is to highlight how policy responses would contribute to maintain employment in the face of climate change.
An infrastructure-oriented climate risk assessment was piloted for the planned Cai Lon – Cai Be sluice gate system project in the Mekong Delta– an infrastructure investment by the Government of Vietnam with an estimated budget of USD 145 million, starting from 2018 until 2021 with a significant function to prevent salt water intrusion, especially with regards to higher probabilities of severe droughts.
To facilitate and streamline the replica of the Cai Lon-Cai Be sluice gate climate risk assessment in Vietnam, this document provides a detail description of the kind of services needed. Based on the structure of a typical recipe, the provided services are divided in three components; procedure, quantity and costs.
Climate risk assessment on infrastructure: A report about the bridge over the Tempisque river in Guardia, Costa Rica
In a nutshell, the report provides decision-makers with necessary information to adopt adaptation measurements towards the maintenance and operation of a climate-resilient bridge. Of equal importance is the development of capacities among as well as the mainstream of the approach. Lastly, the assessment has incentivised to develop of a climate risk assessment tool tailor-made to the Costa Rican context.
Overview of Fiji’s Response to International Frameworks on Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change
This document provides an overview of how Fiji, a Pacific Island country affected by climate change, has responded nationally to international and regional frameworks and guidelines on adaptation and human mobility in the context of climate change. It covers, inter alia, how Fiji developed its Planned Relocation Guidelines – A framework to undertake climate change related relocation, the first to ever be developed in the Pacific Islands.
In the framework of a SPA grant agreement, WWF US developed eight simple recommendations for countries to include nature-based solutions in their climate plans (NDCs) and thereby show their commitment to take ambitious climate action.
Comprehensive Risk Management. The Approach of German Development Cooperation for Dealing with Disaster and Climate Risks
Comprehensive risk management involves bringing together strategies and measures to reduce disaster and climate risks. Rather than a series of individual measures, it combines both tried-and-tested and innovative instruments from the fields of climate change mitigation, climate change adaptation, disaster risk management and social protection into a single holistic approach.
The 5th EbA Knowledge Day was organized by GIZ, IUCN and IIED under the Friends of EbA (FEBA) network in the framework of UNFCCC SBSTA 50. The aim of the event was to enhance knowledge on assessing effectiveness of EbA measures (part 1: morning session) and to better understand governance frameworks relevant for EbA mainstreaming (part 2: afternoon session).The documentation covers key messages, presentations and photos of the event.
