Portfolio Screening: Impacts and Risks of Climate Change to Brazilian Coastal Public Ports – Executive Summary

Coping with the consequences of climate change is one of the most complex challenges of Brazil.
The port sector is among the sectors that can directly face the impacts from climate change — specially
because port infrastructure is highly exposed to climatic hazards. The report includes a climate risk assessment for 21 public ports with actionable policy recommendations. This Portfolio Screening is based on the PIEVC Protocol.

Five Key Messages on How to Implement Agroecology as a Systemic Adaptation Response

This policy brief introduces the benefits of aligning the approaches of agroecology and Ecosystem-based Adaptation for a (climate) resilient and nature-friendly transformation of agri-food systems. It presents five key messages, including the need for a systemic transformation, alliances for change, circular knowledge transfer, the creation of an enabling environment and local-responsive financial support.

Climate Justice in Ecosystem-based Adaptation: The case of Indigenous municipalities in the province of la Mosquitia, Honduras

The case of Honduras / La Mosquitia illustrates the importance of integrating justice issues into the project during the early stages of planning. It is especially important to integrate these issues into governance structures and processes in the project area, although project management needs to consider them as well. Entry points for anchoring justice issues strategically include the project concept, steering structure, monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system and the staff concept. Integrating the various dimensions of justice – recognition justice, procedural justice and distributive justice – through these entry points is a key prerequisite for justice to be considered in project implementation.

Climate Justice in Ecosystem-based Adaptation: The case of Soc Trang coastal zone, Vietnam

The case of Vietnam / Soc Trang illustrates the importance of climate justice as a precondition for successfully and sustainably protecting mangrove forests. Mangrove forests protect the coast and people from storms and flooding. Additionally, the ecosystem provides other co-benefits, like the increase of income through fisheries by providing nursery grounds, food, shelter and habitat for a wide range of aquatic species. The case highlights how a justice-based implementation approach strengthened equal participation and benefits of a co-management approach, which actively promoted different dimensions of climate justice.

Synergies between adaptation, biodiversity, and mitigation: How Ecosystem-based Adaptation can build bridges between Nationally Determined Contributions and the new Global Biodiversity Framework

At the 15th Conference of the Parties (COP15) of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity held in December 2022, the new Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) has been adopted. Based on these developments, the publication on synergies between adaptation, biodiversity and mitigation takes this new international reality into account. After some general considerations on the role of EbA in building bridges, the authors of the study apply this perspective to three cases (Pakistan, Jordan and Costa Rica), exploring synergies of ecosystem-based approaches in the water, agriculture and urban sectors.

Analyse des risques climatiques pour l’identification et la pondération des stratégies d’adaptation dans le secteur agricole du Niger

L’étude se concentre sur l’évolution des tendances en matière de température et de précipitations, sur la disponibilité future de l’eau et sur l’aptitude du pays à cultiver des cultures dans différents scénarios d’émissions. Les projections de l’étude vont jusqu’en 2090, ce qui permet non seulement d’examiner les tendances à court terme (2030), mais aussi de prendre en compte les impacts du changement climatique à moyen (2050) et à long terme. En outre, l’étude entreprend une analyse coûts-bénéfices des actions d’adaptation sélectionnées, sur la base de laquelle des “business cases” pour l’adaptation peuvent être identifiés.

Climate Risk Analysis for Identifying and Weighing Adaptation Strategies in Niger’s Agricultural Sector

The study focuses on evolving trends for temperature and precipitation, future water availability and the country’s suitability to grow crops under different climate change scenarios. The study’s projections go up to 2090, offering opportunities not only to look into short-term trends (2030), but also to take into account medium (2050) and long-term climate change impacts. In addition, the study undertakes a cost-benefit analysis of selected adaptation actions on which basis “business cases” for adaptation can be identified.

BALIK PROBINSYA: A phenomenological case study of pandemic-related reverse migration from Metro Manila to Leyte province, Philippines

The Balik Probinsya program is a longterm program of the government intended for Metro Manila residents who want to return to their provinces “for good.” This paper is interested in determining the effects of this reverse migration on the rural areas and the loss of remittances from these returning migrants on the community of origin, especially any adaptation to climate change activities.
