Costs of adaptation for many sectors, costs and benefits for road transport sector

Potential costs and benefits of adaptation options: A review of existing literature

Critique of UNFCCC (2007) and comment on global adaptation financing needs for 2030 in developing countries. Concludes the costs of adapting to climate change have been significantly under-estimated.

Assessing the Costs of Adaptation to Climate Change: A Review of the UNFCCC and Other Recent Estimates.

Critique of UNFCCC (2007) and comment on global adaptation financing needs for 2030 in developing countries. Concludes the costs of adapting to climate change have been significantly under-estimated. Discussion of previous health costs Content: 1. The range of global estimates 2. Costs of adaptation in agriculture, forestry and fisheries 3. Costs of adaptation in the water sector 4. Adaptation costs for human health 5. Adaptation costs for coasts and low-lying settlements 6. The costs of adapting infrastructure to climate change 7. Costing adaptation for natural ecosystems 8.

Investment and financial flows to address Climate Change

Discussion on financing from investment and financial needs for enhancing funding for mitigation, adaptation and technology cooperation. Sectoral estimates of adaptation costs by region and globally for 2030.

Cost of Adapting Fisheries to Climate Change

To help meet these two objectives, this study is global in its scope. First, we will provide country/regional adaptation costs to contribute to the discussion on climate change leading up to the Copenhagen conference in late 2009. Second, this work will begin to develop the procedures that will be needed to generate aggregate adaptation cost numbers once country case studies are completed.

Handbook on Methods for Climate Change Impact Assessment and Adaptation Strategies

This handbook is designed to provide newcomers to the field of climate impact and adaptation assessment with a guide to available research methods, particularly for answering the first question. The handbook will also serve as a ready reference for many others currently engaged in impacts and adaptation research.

Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Strategies in Italy. An Economic Assessment

In this paper, the economic value of the impacts of climate change is assessed for different Italian economic sectors and regions. Sectoral and regional impacts are then aggregated to provide a macroeconomic estimate of variations in GDP induced by climate change in the next decades.

Adapting agriculture to climate change

There are many potential adaptation options available for marginal change of existing agricultural systems, often variations of existing climate risk management. We show that implementation of these options is likely to have substantial benefits under moderate climate change for some cropping systems. However, there are limits to their effectiveness under more severe climate changes. Hence, more systemic changes in resource allocation need to be considered, such as targeted diversification of production systems and livelihoods.

Climate adaptation in the Netherlands

In spite of various mitigation strategies that are being implemented to reduce and prevent future adverse effects of climate change, there is widespread agreement that climate change will nonetheless take place. This report anticipates on the urgent need to respond adequately to climate change in the Netherlands by identifying adaptation strategies both for the public and private sector. In the analysis we focus on sector-specific adaptation options and explore some of the synergies that may exist amongst the various policy options.
