Routledge Handbook of the Economics of Climate Change Adaptation

This book deals with the difficulties that face the economics of adaptation. Critical issues include: uncertainty; baselines; reversibility, flexibility and adaptive management; distributional impacts; discount rates and time horizons; mixing monetary and non-monetary evaluations and limits to the use of cost-benefit analysis; economy-wide impacts and cross-sectoral linkages. All of these are addressed in the book from the perspective of economics of adaptation.

Economic approaches for assessing climate change adaptation options under uncertainty

This study was commissioned as part of IMACC to look at approaches for the economic assessment of climate change adaptation options. Special emphasis is being placed on the issue of including uncertainty in the economic assessment and respective approaches. The study’s terms of reference (ToRs), define three main tasks: 1. Discussing existing needs and experience gained with respect to the use of economic approaches for the assessment of climate change adaptation options; 2.

Adapting to the Impacts of Climate Change

This report provides examples of the range of options currently available for adapting to climate variability and extremes in key climate-sensitive sectors, such as agriculture, energy, and transportation. Although these examples alone may not be sufficient for coping with future climate change, they offer a starting point for devising adaptation strategies. While the report provides a long list of options to be considered for various sectors.

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.

Part III: Annexes to Impact Assessment Guidelines

These Guidelines are for Commission staff preparing impact assessments. They consist of a core text (this document) and annexes. The core text explains what IA is, presents the key actors, sets out the procedural rules for preparing, carrying out and presenting an IA, and gives guidance on the analytical steps to follow in the IA work. The Annexes deliver more support.
