Adaptation of Forests to Climate Change

To meet these two objectives, the broad World Bank effort will proceed on two tracks, a case study and an aggregate track. This study is part of the aggregate track, which has two objectives. The first is to ensure the availability of developing country/regional adaptation cost estimates to contribute to the discussion on climate change leading up to the Copenhagen conference in late 2009. The second objective of the aggregate track to begin to develop procedures that will be needed to generate aggregate adaptation cost numbers once the country case studies are completed.

The Economics of Adaptation to Climate Change: Methodology Report Annex

To shed light on adaptation costs—and with the global climate change negotiations resuming in December 2009 in Copenhagen—the Economics of Adaptation to Climate Change (EACC) study was initiated by the World Bank in early 2008, funded by the governments of the Netherlands, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Its objectives are to develop an estimate of adaptation costs for developing countries and to help decision makers in developing countries understand and assess the risks posed by climate change and design better strategies to adapt to climate change.

Economic Approaches to Climate Change Adaptation and their role in project prioritisation and appraisal

In this paper the authors Peter Kuch and Simone Gigli have been applying their economist’s thinking to the challenge of how to prioritise and appraise adaptation options in developing countries. As we foresee plenty of work ahead of us in order to make adaptation happen, we hope this work on economic approaches to climate change adaptation will both help the conceptual discussion along and will assist us in getting the priorities right in practical adaptation action.

The Costs to Developing Countries of Adapting to Climate Change: New Methods and Estimates
