    • CLIMATE RESILIENCE: CROSSING THE RIVER BY FEELING THE STONES Michael Mullan, Britta Labuhn, Eva Hübner
    • • This presentation provides the headline results from an OECD project analysing experience to date in integrating climate resilience into development planning. • It was informed by an Expert Workshop held in April 2013 (http://oe.cd/s8) and 2 country case studies: Ethiopia and Colombia) • Financial support from the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office is gratefully acknowledged 2 Background
    • 3 Development planning: key entry point for climate resilience
    • Ethiopia: visible correlation between climate variability and GDP variability 4 Source: Conway and Shipper (2011)
    • • Sequencing of GTP and CRGE vision • High degree of overlap between climate resilience and existing practice – 38 of 41 measures in the Ag CRS already underway • Innovative micro-level regimes to increase resilience (HARITA & PSNP) • Reductions in underlying risks are a major part of the fiscal risk management strategy 5 Ethiopia – other messages
    • • Overlap between the key growth sectors and those relevant for adaptation (Ag, Transport, Energy and Housing); • Responsibility for adaptation in National Planning Department; • Separate institutional systems for adaptation and disaster risk management; • Development of layered strategy for managing fiscal consequences of disasters. 6 Colombia
    • 1. Common vision: political will and development of institutional structures; 2. Evolutionary approach: focus on current problems, with initial thinking about longer-term vulnerabilities; 3. Evidence to guide “transformational” changes is very limited; 4. Finance & capacity remain major barriers. 7 Common themes
    • • Making climate resilience central to development planning • Encouraging private sector action to build resilience • Linking disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation 8 Priorities for action
    • Michael.mullan@oecd.org http://oe.cd/adaptation 9 Comments or questions?
    • 1. Institutional structure that facilitates co- ordination 2. Building capacity 3. Strong evidence base to make the case for action 4. Sufficient financing for delivery of national resilience objectives 5. Mechanisms to monitor and evaluate, learn and adjust course 10 Building blocks
