The Resilience, Adaptation Pathways and Transformation Assessment (RAPTA) Framework

The concepts of resilience, adaptation and transformation are gaining prominence and being translated into aspirational goals that guide policy development. Understanding resilience, adaptation and transformation is critical to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those related to climate change adaptation, food security, and safeguarding ecosystem functions. Devising interventions to progress resilience goals requires methods to evaluate resilience, and identify needs with respect to adaptation and transformation. Monitoring progress toward these goals requires identification of relevant indicators. The Resilience, Adaptation Pathways and Transformation Assessment (RAPTA) was commissioned by STAP to address these needs. The RAPTA provides a tool to align approaches and monitoring towards common objectives, contribute to integrated strategies, and pursue synergies in reporting between the Rio Conventions[1]. Use of the RAPTA will assist development initiatives to generate sustained positive impacts. The RAPTA was developed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in partnership with STAP. The background concepts and complete RAPTA are described in the technical report: O'Connell, D., Walker, B., Abel, N., Grigg, N. (2015) The Resilience, Adaptation and Transformation Assessment Framework: From Theory to Application. CSIRO, Australia. The case studies report presents a desk-top application of the RAPTA in two agro-ecosystems: irrigated rice in Thailand and a semi-arid agro-pastoral system in Niger: Grigg, N., Abel, N., O'Connell, D. & Walker, B.

Review of GEF Climate Resilience

This review provides an updated, structured assessment of the impacts of climate change on GEF projects. In particular, the review focuses on the impact of climate change on ecosystems and species and its implications on GEF-6 strategy focal areas of biodiversity, land degradation, international waters and sustainable forest management. The review is intended primarily for the GEF Partnership and particularly the GEF Secretariat. The report is based on the outcomes of  GEF-STAP workshop on the topic held in January 2014 and builds on pre-existing GEF work on the issue. The analysis framework considered the climate change impacts on each of the four GEF focal areas in relation to a range of factors that are likely to be impacted by climate change: (A) physical/chemical properties and resources, (B) biological processes, (C) species and ecosystems, (D) provisioning ecosystem services, (E) regulating ecosystem services and (F) socio-economic systems and infrastructure.   Publication Date: July 2014 Authors: Rebecca Mant, Stephen Woroniecki, Elina Vaananen, and Valerie Kapos DOWNLOAD
