The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has commissioned the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) with a global initiative on risk assessment and management relating to climate change adaptation. The goal of this global initiative is the development and testing of innovative concepts and instruments for assessing and managing climate risks in four pilot case countries and regions. These approaches are to support Germany’s development cooperation partner countries in managing their climate risks. The experience gained should additionally contribute to the international climate dialogue in the form of expert recommendations.
Within the framework of this initiative, adelphi has been commissioned by the GIZ to collaborate on a needs analysis ("scoping mission") in the Pacific islands. The contract includes a preparatory desktop analysis, a week taking on-site (Fiji and Vanuatu), and contributions to the final report.
