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).

Planning for the future – Using scenario planning to improve the understanding and management of climate-induced migration

This factsheet provides an overview of scenario planning as an approach to deal with migration, displacement and planned relocation in the context of climate change. Scenario planning is a method that involves a wide range of stakeholders and serves as a tool for developing a range of future scenarios based on multiple factors and influences.

The Global Programme Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH has successfully applied scenario planning methods with its partners in the Caribbean, Pacific and the Philippines. In this context, valuable insights and important options for action could be identified.

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 ».

Climate Risk Management for infrastructure as part of the NAP in Costa Rica

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.

Factsheet BMZ Global Programme on Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change

This factsheet provides insights into the different forms of human mobility – migration, displacement and planned relocation – and its multiple drivers that result in a person´s decision to migrate or stay in the face of extreme weather events and gradual changes in the environment. It presents how GIZ´s Global Programme “Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change” (GP HMCCC) improves applied knowledge on climate-induced migration and how it supports national and regional partners, non-governmental organisations and universities to discuss and deal with the resulting challenges in its project regions.

GIZ Factsheet: Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change – Migration, Displacement and Planned Relocation in the Eastern Caribbean, the Pacific and the Philippines

This factsheet provides an introduction to the topic of HMCCC and gives an overview of relevant international policy frameworks. It looks at the partner regions and activities of the Global Programme on Human Mobility in the Context of Climate Change (GP HMCCC), implemented by GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

Supplementary Factsheet – Climate risk analysis for identifying and weighing adaptation strategies in Ghana’s agricultural sector

This factsheet is supplement to the “Climate risk analysis for identifying and weighing adaptation strategies in Ghana’s agricultural sector” which was prepared by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) for the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

Climate change and small-scale fisheries

The fisheries sector contributes significantly to income and food security for hundreds of millions of people, particularly in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and coastal Least Developed Countries (LDCs).

Long-term Strategies in a Changing Climate

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.
