Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in Agri-Food Systems: A Compendium of Analytic Tools for Practitioners

The Compendium provides an overview of the most relevant tools that can be applied to integrate climate change adaptation and mitigation into development projects. It categorizes these tools by level and complexity of application, methodology and target group and prepares the tools for a more convenient application by practitioners. The tools enable entry points for agroecological transformation and identify site-appropriate agroecological practices.

The interactive Product Landscape complements the Compendium and gives a visual overview of and easy access to the tools as well as additional relevant documents.

Assessing the adaptation relevance of soil protection and rehabilitation

Soil protection and rehabilitation (SPR) technologies frequently provide several advantages, including benefits for mitigation and adaptation, while also lining up with farmers’ goals to boost and secure their yields. This guide and Excel-based tool provide a participatory method of identifying relevant climate risks and assessing how well SPR solutions address such risks as well as their local feasibility.

Climate Risk Communication Guideline

This guideline offers insights and lessons learned on the preparation and implementation of climate risk communication approaches. It was developed by the Community of Practice Climate Risk to provide directions on the preparation and implementation of communication approaches and the dissemination of results to different users and target groups for the improved uptake of the results of climate risk and vulnerability assessments.

PIEVC Green Protocol — Integrating Ecosystem-based Adaptation into Infrastructure Climate Risk Assessments

The PIEVC Green Protocol describes a step-by-step methodology of risk assessment and optional engineering analysis for evaluating the risk of climate change on infrastructure, while considering the broader social and environmental systems within which the infrastructure component is situated. Information developed through the assessment process will assist owners, operators and other professionals, to effectively incorporate climate change adaptation into design, development and management of existing and planned infrastructure and its surrounding environment, including ecosystems.

Climate Justice in EbA: the new publications collection

The IKI-funded and GIZ-implemented Global Project Mainstreaming EbA is launching the new collection of publications on “Climate justice in Ecosystem-based Adaptation”. In early 2022 the Global Project on Mainstreaming EbA together with FAKT Consult launched a process to assess and contribute to bridging the gap between theory and practice of justice-based EbA. The outcomes of this process have been used to develop a collection of publications which hold knowledge and can provide guidance to bridge the gap towards justice-based EbA on the ground.

PIEVC High Level Screening Guide: A guide to completing screening level climate change risk assessments using the PIEVC Process

This PIEVC High Level Screening Guide (HLSG) is based on standard climate risk assessment
methods and is part of the PIEVC Family of Ressources. The PIEVC HLSG process is an approach
for undertaking vulnerability, risk, and resilience assessments. It is flexible enough to be applied to full assets or systems, to a single element of infrastructure, or to an entire portfolio of numerous assets.

PIEVC HLSG assessments result in the characterization and ranking of climate risk scenarios and the identification of those scenarios of highest priority for adaptation planning or more comprehensive

Solutions in Focus – Key Themes for Ecosystem-based Adaptation

This publication intends to inspire policy- and decision-makers as well as practitioners by showcasing a selection of solutions that have been applied in very different settings and focusing on key aspects and themes that are important for the longevity of EbA. It shows that EbA has ‘many faces’: it is being implemented successfully in a broad range of countries and ecosystems and it is driven forward by all kinds of people and organisations.
