Economics of Climate Adaptation
Authored by the ECA Working Group, this report looks at eight case studies and identifies significant potential for cost-effective adaptation measures.
THE ECONOMICS OF CLIMATE ADAPTATION
Authored by the Economics of Climate Adaptation Working Group, Shaping climate-resilient development: a framework for decision-making, identifies significant potential for cost-effective adaptation measures. It presents a practical framework that national and local officials can use to quantify the risk that climate change poses to their economies, and to minimise the cost of adapting to that risk.
