The economic analysis of climate adaptation: Insights for policy-makers. (2016)

Description

This guide aims to:

  • Inform the application of economic assessment tools to adaptation. In particular, it provides information on methodologies, data and evidence for practitioners with a more technical background.
  • Target interested policy makers and eonomists, some of whom may use or develop the methods further, others who may simply gather information on how to interpret results or methodological approaches. Furthermore, it can be of interest to a wider group of experts, stakeholders, and students carrying out case studies.
  • Provide linkages to the more detailed information available online through the ECONADAPT toolbox and ECONADAPT library
    .
