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
