Economics of Adaptation to Climate Change: A Synthesis Report.

Abstract

This Synthesis Report sits at the apex of a global study report and seven country case study reports. The global study consists of a number of sector studies, which were commissioned by the EACC project. Country case study reports present findings from sector analyses conducted at the national level, and include analysis of three to five sectors, depending on the country.

This Report presents a synthesis of the methodology developed and results derived from research conducted for the EACC global and country study tracks in Bolivia, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mozambique, Vietnam and Samoa. The report intends to provide information on lessons learned and insights gained on adaptation to climate change from global, country and sector-level analyses. Recommendations are made to help guide prioritization of actions, as well as the development of a robust, integrated approach for increasing resilience to climate risks across scales of action.

The report comprises five main sections. Section II presents the concepts and methodology used for analyses in both the global and the country case studies. Section III introduces the results from the global analysis and Section IV focuses on results from the country analyses. Section V discusses the limitations of the EACC study and the final section presents lessons learned and recommendations for future work.
