By reading this report, the user will gain a good appreciation of the contents of the implementation guidelines, and its potential as a tool to: • Provide guidance on how to generate valid ‘order of magnitude’ estimates of the cost of climate risks, and the benefits of adaptation to these risks. • Minimise the potential for poor, inaccurate or inconsistent cost estimation. • Provide the user with an iterative costing process with built-in flexibility to permit the depth of the analysis desired by the decision-maker to coincide with data, budget and time constraints.
