Water resource planning under climate uncertainty in London

This case study aims to assess what effect factoring long term climate uncertainty has on investment planning in the water sector, specifically: - The impact on reliability of resources. - Whether the impacts alter the cost-effectiveness of supply-demand options. - The impact on investment decisions and the robustness of option programmes.

National Economic Environment Development Studies

The main objectives of the National Economic, Environment and Development Study (NEEDS) are to support the participating countries in: (1) Selecting key sectors for climate change mitigation and adaptation measures, on the basis of priorities identified in the national communications and in national development plans; (2) Assessing the financing required and received to implement mitigation and adaptation measures in the key sectors selected in 1.

World Development Report 2009: Reshaping Economic Geography

Growing cities, ever more mobile people, and increasingly specialized products are integral to development. These changes have been most noticeable in North America, Western Europe, and Northeast Asia. But countries in East and South Asia and Eastern Europe are now experiencing changes that are similar in their scope and speed. World Development Report 2009: Reshaping Economic Geography concludes that such transformations will remain essential for economic success in other parts of the developing world and should be encouraged.

Managing uncertainty: An economic evaluation of community-based adaptation in Dakoro, Niger

In this research, we use a SCBA approach to appraise and evaluate CARE International’s Adaptation Learning Programme (ALP) in Niger.

Counting on uncertainty: The economic case for community based adaptation in North-East Kenya

This research aims to fill this gap: within the framework of the Adaptation Learning Program (ALP), we seek to assess whether investing in community based adaptation is economically efficient and effective holding all else, i.e. future regional or national scale transformations, equal.

Managing the land in a changing climate

This report is part of a series of annual progress reports by the Adaptation Sub-Committee to assess how the country is preparing for the major risks and opportunities from climate change. Together these reports will provide the baseline evidence for the Committee’s statutory report to Parliament on preparedness due in 2015.

An Independent National Adaptation Programme for England

The purpose of this policy brief is to contribute to the National Adaptation Programme that is currently under preparation by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. The Climate Change Act (Her Majesty’s Government, 2008) requires the Government to put in place, and update every five years, a National Adaptation Programme (NAP), which addresses climate change risks. This policy brief aims to contribute to this process by offering an analytical framework and formulating a rational basis for thinking about adaptation.

Estimating future costs for Alaska public infrastructure at risk from climate change

This analysis reports on the projected cost of Alaska’s public infrastructure at risk from rapid climate change. Specifically, we coupled projections of future climate with engineering rules of thumb to estimate how thawing permafrost, increased flooding, and increased coastal erosion affect annualized replacement costs for nearly 16,000 structures.
