Evaluating the economic impacts of climate change in Eurasia
As part of its work related to climate change adaptation, Eco developed a stock taking report on the different methodologies for evaluating the economic impacts of climate change. The paper served as a background resource for the conference “Socio-economic assessment of climate change impacts”.
Eco’s Seth Landau also played an integral role in developing the agenda and concept for the conference and reporting on the workshop findings. Eco’s consultants have strong experience in evaluating the likely impacts of climate change, and helping with the planning and project development process for adaptation.
This assignment built upon the work by members of Eco related to adaptation to climate change – including working with UNDP Croatia to develop their 2008 Human Development Report on the socio-economic impacts of climate change, helping to improve a similar report for UNDP Armenia and developing project proposals for EBRD related to adaptation. Eco has also worked with UNDP country offices in Bosnia Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Kazakhstan in developing project proposals for their National Communications to the UNFCCC.
The field of adaptation is growing in importance as climate change impacts are beginning to be felt and countries are working to move towards climate-resilient economic and social systems. The process of developing proposals and analysing climate change impacts requires a strong understanding of the issues, the science behind the analysis, and the risks which are expected due to climate change. Eco’s team can help your organisation to address not only climate change mitigation, but also adaptation.
