Estimating and Comparing Costs and Benefits of Adaptation Projects: Case Studies in South Africa and The Gambia

This study develops the capacity to estimate and compare the benefits and costs of projects in natural resource sectors that reduce the expected damages from climate change in South Africa (the water sector) and The Gambia (the agricultural sector).

Adapting to Climate Change: Costs, Benefits, and Modelling Approaches

Summarizes and critically assesses different methodologies and results of literature on the economics of adaptation.

Climate Proofing: A Risk-based Approach to Adaptation

Collection of six case studies in Asia to show why and demonstrate how reducing climate-related risks is an integral part of sustainable development.

Climate’s long-term impacts on metro Boston, Final Report to the US EPA (CLIMB).

Describes impacts on a major U.S. city (Boston), what those impacts are likely to cost, and what adaptive measures can be taken to protect the region from the worst of these effects. Assessment of health from heat, and concludes adaptation can reduce to negligble risks

Costing the impacts of climate change in the UK: overview of guidelines

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.

Beating the Heat: keepings UK buildings cool in a warming climate.

The main focus of this report is how to avoid summertime thermal discomfort in buildings while still minimising energy use. In Section 2, we define what comfortable means and how acceptable levels of carbon dioxide emissions are currently defined. In Section 3, we begin to look at the climate change scenarios and how they have been used. In Section 4, the features of buildings enabling them to stay cool in summer are discussed. Section 5 makes a qualitative assessment by taking a first look at the likely impacts of the projected climate changes.
