Guidelines for Project Managers: Making vulnerable investments climate resilient (2013)

Description

These Guidelines form part of the overall EU effort to mainstream climate change adaptation, in line with the White Paper on Adapting to Climate Change published by the Commission in 2009. They are designed to provide support to developers of physical assets and infrastructure. They are aimed at helping project developers understand the steps they can take to make investment projects resilient to climate variability and change. The Guidelines provide information on the steps that can be undertaken to integrate climate resilience within a familiar project lifecycle appraisal practiced by project developers. They are intended:

• to help manage the additional risks from climate change,

• to complement and integrate within the familiar project appraisal processes used in project development, but

• not to replace existing project development processes.
