The economics of climate change: The Stern review

Economics of climate change, including estimates of the costs of adaptation (globally) for developed countries.

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.

An Analysis of Adaptation as a Response to Climate Change'

Intergrated Assessment by using the AD-WITCH model, looking at doubling of CO2 concentration

The Costs and Benefits of Adaptation

Integrated Assessment Model (PAGE) runs for global costs and benefits of adaptation.

The Costs of Agricultural Adaptation to Climate Change

The challenge of modeling climate change impacts in agriculture arises in the wide ranging nature of processes that underlie the working of markets, ecosystems, and human behavior. Our analytical framework integrates modeling components that range from the macro to the micro and from processes that are driven by economics to those that are essentially biological in nature.

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.

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.
