  • Building Transformative Institutional Adaptive Capacity: Assessing the Potential Contribution of PPCR to Build a Climate Resilient Water Governance Framework in Bolivia

    This study refines a robust methodological framework to assess adaptive capacity in the Bolivian water governance system. Under the framework, an exploration of how governance systems have managed and responded to past extreme events, and what manifestations of adaptive capacity have arisen, has allowed for the examination of whether governance practices have hindered or enabled adaptive capacity, emphasizing transformative processes. This assessment thereby provides the foundation to explore the potential of the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) under the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) to address gaps, build adaptive capacity, and achieve transformative change in the Bolivian water sector.

  • The State of the World's Forests

    As the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity 2011–2020 comes to a close and countries prepare to adopt a post-2020 global biodiversity framework, this edition of The State of the World’s Forests (SOFO) examines the contributions of forests, and of the people who use and manage them, to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.

    Forests cover just over 30 percent of the global land area, yet they provide habitat for the vast majority of the terrestrial plant and animal species known to science. Unfortunately, forests and the biodiversity they contain continue to be under threat from actions to convert the land to agriculture or unsustainable levels of exploitation, much of it illegal.

    The State of the World’s Forests 2020 assesses progress to date in meeting global targets and goals related to forest biodiversity and examines the effectiveness of policies, actions and approaches, in terms of both conservation and sustainable development outcomes. A series of case studies provide examples of innovative practices that combine conservation and sustainable use of forest biodiversity to create balanced solutions for both people and the planet.

  • Climate Change and Migration in Vulnerable Countries A snapshot of least developed countries, landlocked developing countries and small island developing States

    The least developed countries (LDCs), landlocked developing countries (LLDCs) and small island developing States (SIDS) are among the most vulnerable groups of countries in the world. They are disproportionately affected by the negative impacts of climate change due to their structural constraints and geographical disadvantage. In 2016, 13 out of the 15 countries with the highest vulnerability to natural hazards were from the LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS groups.

    The migration and climate change nexus is present across all three groups of countries. The programmes of action of LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS, namely the Istanbul Programme of Action, the Vienna Programme of Action and the SAMOA Pathway, point out the vulnerability of these countries to external shocks, including climate change, and recognize the role of migrants in the development of their communities through remittances, as well as transfer of skills and knowledge.

    This paper aims to inform policymakers of the complex dynamics of climate-induced migration in LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS. It provides an overview of the migration and climate change nexus in each group of countries and proposes ways forward to address it.

  • Drivers of change and adaptation pathways of agricultural systems facing increased salinity intrusion in coastal areas of the Mekong and Red River deltas in Vietnam

    The analysis is based on 27 in-depth interviews with officials of local and national authorities as well as 198 semi-structured interviews and 11 focus group discussions conducted with farmers along three salinity transects in both deltas in 2015-2016. The results show that a dynamic interplay and feedback of various drivers of change such as policy intervention, farmers’ desire for profit maximization, changing salinity conditions, and technological development at different levels of the deltaic social-ecological system have shaped the changes and adaptations in agricultural systems over the last decades. In response to increased salinity intrusion, as exemplified by the historic salinity levels recorded in the Mekong Delta in 2015–2016, various adaptation options have been considered. These include adaptations that would lock-in agricultural production in particular systems or constrain changes in others, which is potentially problematic in light of the high uncertainty related to future changes. The study recognizes the need to apply both incremental and transformative changes and select adaptation pathways which allow for continuous change or that are reversible in order to avoid lock-ins and address future challenges. Additionally, attention should be drawn to interactions and feedbacks in future changes within and across adaptation pathways in order to prevent further increases in salinity intrusion and lock-in effects in agricultural systems within the deltas.

  • Evaluation and Learning Partnership on financing forest-related enterprises: Learning from the Forest Investment Program and other initiatives

    The objective of this learning review is to learn lessons from the experience of the Climate Investment Funds’ (CIF)  Forest Investment Program (FIP) and other initiatives in supporting investments in forest-related enterprises. The study identifies key barriers and risks that impact leveraging private finance and examines how to overcome these challenges to increase the viability and scale of private-sector investments, with an emphasis on small and medium-scale enterprises.

    FIP works primarily through multilateral development banks (MDBs) to put in place enabling investments, with aspirations towards piloting replicable models of REDD+ asset investment that will attract new and additional sources of finance.

  • Evaluation of Transformational Change in the Climate Investment Funds

    This evaluation seeks to understand the Climate Investment Funds’ (CIF) contribution to transformational change toward low-carbon and climate-resilient development in the areas of mitigation, resilience, and forestry. The evaluation aims to bring about more transformative climate programming by providing findings to improve the design and delivery of existing CIF programs; inform the operation of other climate funds; help design future climate finance initiatives; and aid those engaged in monitoring, evaluation, and learning for climate funds.

    This evaluation does not seek to evaluate CIF’s overall performance but rather to understand how, and to what extent, CIF has been able to contribute to transformational change. A theory-based approach is used exploring the mechanisms of how and under what circumstances transformational change takes place and identifying the role that CIF has played in these changes.

  • Resilience of agricultural systems facing increased salinity intrusion in deltaic coastal areas of Vietnam

    The resilience concept has provided a new insight and approach to the conventional perspective of agricultural management by emphasizing the need to maintain a diversity of future options to adapt to inevitable and often unpredictable changes. The concept has been taken up by various academic disciplines and development sectors, yet ways to define and operationalize resilience as a measurable concept are still being developed. We contributed to this ongoing effort by implementing a subjective resilience assessment method based on farmers’ perceptions of three resilience components: (1) the sensitivity of their agricultural systems to increased salinity intrusion, (2) the capacity to recover from salinity damage, and (3) the capacity to change to other systems if salinity increases in the future. We conducted 27 in-depth interviews with local and national authorities, 11 focus group discussions, and 118 semistructured and 219 structured interviews with farmers in case study villages located along salinity transects in the Mekong Delta and at different distances to sea dikes in the Red River Delta in Vietnam in 2015-2016. Results from the subjective resilience assessment reveal that none of the agricultural systems studied systematically scored higher than the other systems on all three resilience components, implying that an increase in one resilience component by switching agricultural systems would negatively affect others. Agricultural responses to this salinity problem will influence current and long-term adaptability of the systems to future changes in salinity intrusion and other social-ecological developments in the deltas. Improving resilience components, e.g., through policies and interventions, resource allocation, and farming system changes, to sustain agricultural production or facilitate transformation to alternative systems when necessary is critically important for agricultural systems facing stress. Complementing subjective resilience assessments with qualitative data is thus crucial for understanding the drivers of resilience to improve components of resilience for agricultural systems in the respective deltas.

  • The Clean Technology Fund and Concessional Finance

    This study takes one of the first comprehensive looks at how concessional finance has already been used and could be used in the future to accelerate deployments of clean energy technologies in emerging markets. It then analyzes how concessional funds may be effectively deployed in the future, and in what types of markets concessional finance can generate the greatest impact by driving down technology costs, creating and de-risking markets, and opening doors for commercial finance.

    This study reviews concessional finance efforts of the Climate Investment Funds' (CIF) Clean Technology Fund (CTF) in five countries: Chile, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Morocco, and Thailand. The CTF was established to provide scaled-up financing to developing countries for the demonstration, deployment, and transfer of low-carbon technologies with a significant potential for long-term greenhouse-gas emissions savings.

  • Using a nexus approach to improve climate resilience and benefit society, the economy and the environment

    To address a specific gap, the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) has been using conventional approaches, policy and investment assessments along with forecasting tools. The analyses conducted are often comparatively static (mostly employing linear approaches) and narrowly focused on a sector or a specific set of thematic indicators. Instead, a systemic, nexus approach is needed that takes into account social, economic and environmental indicators within a sector, and link them across sectors to generate dynamic projections that make it possible to estimate policy outcomes for all economic actors

  • Why Zimbabwe need to develop and adopt a Climate Change Learning strategy

    To achieve a state of having a knowledgeable and educated population that is able to respond better to the effects of climate change as well as to be able to mitigate against it there is a need to adopt a comprehensive strategy that has a mix of different learning methodologies. To this effect Zimbabwe is in the process of developing a National Climate Change Learning Strategy as part of the UNCC: Learn Southern Africa Initiative which started in 2009 as a collaboration of UN Agencies that support and contribute to effective, sustainable and result-oriented learning to address climate change-related development challenges.

  • Working on a warmer planet: The effect of heat stress on productivity and decent work

    The phenomenon of heat stress refers to heat received in excess of that which the body can tolerate without physiological impairment. It is one of the major consequences of global warming. By 2030, the equivalent of more than 2 per cent of total working hours worldwide is projected to be lost every year, either because it is too hot to work or because workers have to work at a slower pace. This report shows the impact of heat stress on productivity and decent work for virtually all countries in the world. It presents innovative solutions based on social dialogue to promote occupational safety and health for the most vulnerable groups of workers.

  • World Bank Action Plan on Adaptation and Resilience

    This Action Plan is part of the WBG 2025 Climate Change Targets that expand the commitments made under the WBG 2016 Climate Change Action Plan and increase the emphasis on adaptation and resilience. Special attention will be given to vulnerable populations, including the poor, those affected by fragility, conflict, and violence, and small island states. At the same time, to reduce the negative impacts of climate change worldwide, the WBG will also encourage countries to deliver on their commitments to reduce emissions.

    The Action Plan is structured around three objectives:

    -Boost adaptation financing: expanding access to and the effectiveness of additional climate adaptation finance;
    -Drive a mainstreamed, whole-of-government programmatic approach: mainstreaming systematic climate risk management at the country and sector levels;
    -Develop a new rating system: better tracking and incentivizing global progress on adaptation and resilience.
