Policy Advice for Climate Resilient Economic Development
As of: January 2020
Objective and activities
The capacities for the assessment of country-specific climate change impacts on economic development with the help of quantitative modelling are insufficient in many countries. Quantifying the economic climate change impacts can help to take informed political decisions for a climate resilient economic policy. This serves as a basis for shifting investment into sustainable sectors, and to support effective adaptation planning. This global project aims at piloting methods and instruments for modelling the economic impacts of climate change to the benefit of policy design for governments and development actors. Ministries of Economy/Planning in the programme’s three pilot countries (Kazakhstan, Viet Nam, Georgia) will be supported to carry out the modelling and to develop climate resilient economic policies and effective adaptation planning based on the results.
