Screening for climate change and disaster risks in development projectsWebsite
This short e-course walks you through the logical steps of the screening process essential to identify relating climate change and disaster risks at an early stage of investment programs and to integrate appropriate resilience measures to cope with the risks.
Climate risk assessment at community level in the agriculture sectorPDF
This module identifies the tools and methods needed for assessing climate-related risks at community level. It introduces some of the key concepts and steps for climate risk assessment in the context of livelihood adaptation to climate change in agriculture.
FAO’s methodology for damage and loss assessment in agriculturePDF
This paper presents the FAO Damage and Loss Assessment methodology as a framework for identifying, analyzing and evaluating the impact of disasters on agriculture, including crops, livestock, aquaculture, fisheries and forestry. Its potential is explored as a strategic tool for assembling and...
Disaster risk management systems analysis: A guidebookPDF
This guidebook provides a set of tools and methods to assess existing structures and capacities of national, district-level and local institutions responsible for disaster risk management (DRM). It aims at improving their effectiveness and integrating DRM concerns into development planning, with...
Climate resilient practices. Typology and guiding material for climate risk screeningPDF
The objective of this publication is to support the climate risk screening of agricultural investment projects. Climate risk is based on the exposure, main climate hazards, vulnerabilities and the adaptive capacity of the agricultural, social, and ecological systems targeted by a given project....
Integrating Climate Change and Natural Disasters in the Economic Analysis of Projects : A Disaster and Climate Risk Stress Test MethodologyWebsite
To maximize development gains, World Bank projects must consider climate change and disaster risks in their design and appraisal. Buildings could be exposed to heat waves, roads might be vulnerable to floods, and agricultural practices may be subject to drought and pests. Although projects can be...
Climate Risk Toolbox – Guiding material for climate risk screeningPDF
The Climate Risk Toolbox (CRTB) was developed to support climate-resilient project design. The tool is an open-access resource, hosted on the Hand-in-Hand Geospatial platform, allowing users to obtain a climate risk screening in a few simple steps. The CRTB simplifies climate risk screenings. It...
Building resilience into watershedsPDF
The purpose of this Sourcebook is to provide advice on how to incorporate disaster risk reduction and resilience building into the watershed management process. As an increasingly heavier toll is exerted on agriculture and food systems by drought, floods, wildfires, and other extreme events,...
National and policy climate and disaster risk screening toolPDF
This tool helps development practitioners screen key national development goals and associated priority sectors for risks from climate variability and change, as well as from geophysical disasters. The tool is intended to help mainstream climate and disaster-risk reduction into strategic planning...
Climate and disaster risk screening toolsWebsite
These self-paced tools provide a structured and systematic process for understanding climate and disaster risks at an early stage of program and project development. The tools do not provide a detailed risk analysis. They are intended to help determine the need for further studies, consultation...
The livelihood assessment toolkit. Analysing and responding to the impact of disasters on the livelihoods of peoplePDF
This toolkit assesses the impact of disasters on livelihoods and the capacity and opportunities for recovery and increased resilience to future events.
Capacity for Disaster Reduction Initiative (CADRI) toolOther
The CADRI Digital Tool supports countries' efforts to strengthen their national and local capacities to reduce disaster and climate related risks.
Agricultural Adaptation (AgriAdapt) ToolWebsite
AgriAdapt is a free online tool that provides climate information to help agricultural stakeholders understand the climate risks their businesses face. The tool was designed and built through a collaborative, stakeholder-driven process that culminated with in-country launches in India and...
Climate Risk ToolboxWebsite
The Climate Risk Toolbox (CRTB) was developed to support climate-resilient project design.
