Climate Risk Sourcebook published

Funded by Germany's Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) and Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), a new version of the Climate Risk Sourcebook (CR-SB), developed by Eurac’s Research Center for Climate Change and Transformation together with GIZ, UNU-EHS, GeoSphere Austria and IIASA, was launched during the Adaptation Futures 2023 Conference. The book delivers a conceptual framework for a comprehensive Climate Risk Assessment (CRA) together with modular instructions, divided in eight modules, on how it can be conducted. The guidelines were updated to be consistent with the most recent IPCC report (AR6), introducing external risk drivers, impact/risk cascades and systemic risks, and a new chapter on how CRAs inform Climate Risk Management (CRM).
