Adaptation Strategies / Adaptation-Mitigation Nexus(546)
Mainstreaming adaptation measures into development plan is an important step in policy making in response to climate change. Many policy makers are looking at no-regret options or ones that can generate multiple benefits.

The Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific is pleased to announce the last call for applications of the Training Programme on Economics of Climate Change Adaptation under its Climate Change Asia Initiative.

Organizers: the United Nations Development Programme and the United States Agency for International Development Adapt Asia-Pacific Project in cooperation with the Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific, Asian Institute of Technology, under the Climate Change Asia Initiative.

Dates: 21 August to 1 September 2017

Venue: Asian Institute of Technology Conference Centre, Pathumthani, Thailand

Objective: The training programme aims to equip government officials and other stakeholders in the Asia and the Pacific region with economic tools necessary to identify, prioritize, design and implement climate-resilient projects and policies, formulate national adaptation plans and access climate finance for adaptation action.

Content:

  • Introduction to key economic principles and review of impacts of climate change in Asia and the Pacific
  • Assessment of economic impacts of climate change, cost-benefit analysis of investment projects and climate-proofing options
  • Proposal development

The draft agenda is available at: https://tinyurl.com/ECCAagenda

Target audience: (1) policy and technical staff from line ministries and national agencies, non-governmental organizations, academia, and private sector, who are involved in national adaptation planning process, development of project proposals on climate change adaptation and mainstreaming climate change adaptation issues into national strategies and plans; and (2) experts in the field of economics or statistics from governmental, non-governmental and academic institutions who are involved in economic analysis of climate change adaptation actions and climate-resilient investments.   

The training programme is limited to 25 participants as follows:

  • Ten participants from target countries of the UNDP “Economics of Climate Change Adaptation” capacity building programme, namely Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam, will receive full scholarships covering travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses.

Join us for a one-hour webinar to examine some of the lessons learned from M&E emerging from CCA and DRR evaluation processes, and consider how we can ensure that learning can inform both practices.

Three short presentations from DG ECHO, the BRACED programme and the European Topic Centre on Climate Change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation will be followed by a discussion to consider:

  • Questions to the presenters 
  • How can we make better use of M&E outputs in CCA and DRR?
  • How can we transfer M&E lessons between CCA and DRR communities?

Climate change is exacerbating disaster risk, increasing vulnerability and eroding resilience. An increasing emphasis on adapting systems and better managing disaster risks places greater attention on proactive, rather than reactive, approaches.

This requires an understanding of the factors that contribute to adaptation processes in practice; we need to understand what works (or not), in which contexts and why. Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) can play a critical role in improving this understanding by providing the evidence and experience that can improve future practice. M&E can help to avoid costly maladaptation and learn more quickly how the most catastrophic impacts of climate change can be avoided.

We hope you can join us!
