Preserving Value through Adaptation to Climate Change

This study examines the potential role of adaptation in assets and operations in response to climate change, and the expected effect of adaptation activities on firm value. In particular, by defining adaptive capacity of assets and operations, we can value the adaptive capacity of an asset (such as a seawall or a desalination plant) whose capital could lie idle for decades.

Ökonomie des Klimawandels integrierte ökonomische Bewertung der Instrumente zur Anpassung an den Klimawandel.

This study has the overall objective to make proposals for action for the implementation of the National Adaptation Strategy of the German federal government addressing finance and incentive structures. On that account, the current state of research on the economics of climate change and the adaptation to it is assessed, an overview on specific policy measures is given, and possible evaluation criteria of these instruments are created. By means of a illustrative multi-criterion analysis, specific instruments are evaluated.

The implications of climate change for extreme weather events and their socio-economic consequences in Finland.

This publication reports on the main findings the entire TOLERATE project, which was an integrated natural science – social science project for the assessment of climate changed induced changes of extreme weather events and their socialeconomic consequences at a regional level. It includes regional projections of changes in climate conditions in Finland, with special reference to (short) periods with extremely abundant and extreme scant precipitation respectively. Based on these projections changes in river flood risks are assessed for two water shed areas by means of hydrological models.

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.

WGII AR5 Chapter 23: Europe.

Describe different impacts and adaptation costs, benefits for sectors in Europe.
