E-learning Course on the Economics of Climate-Resilient Development

4 Feb 2013 - 5 Mar 2013

This course teaches the basics on how economically viable climate-resilient development plans are developed. It provides an overview on changes in climate patterns already underway and what changes are projected for the future. It is explained why business-as-usual development is not adequate in response to the impacts that result from these changes. Instead the course outlines how impacts are to be managed, including in relation to addressing the challenges of uncertainty surrounding climate impacts in the future. Methods to select and prioritize adaptation options that include their costs are explained.
