Final Report: Results of the Pilot Study of Climate Change Screening of EC's Development Cooperation Portfolio
The study aims to contribute to the implementation of the EC's external policy on CC through a better integration of CC aspects in EC's development portfolio. The objective is to estimate the part of the EC's aid portfolio which is potentially at risk due to CC and to develop further, and test, methods and approaches responding to the challenges of CC on development co-operation to that ensure continuing effectiveness. Specifically, this includes developing and testing an approach to screen EC interventions for their likely vulnerability to CC impacts, and their potential direct and indirect consequences on the capacity to adapt to CC or climate-change mitigation potential of a sector/country. The analysis also provides recommendations to effectively respond to CC challenges in development co-operation.
