  5. 5. BRACED PROJECT Building Resilience and Adapting to Climate Extremes and Disasters Building an evidence base for at-scale transformation of community based resilience. Sixteen grants have been awarded, covering 18 countries in the Sahel, Eastern Africa and Asia, with over 60 sub-grantees. The total programme is £140 million with the Fund Manager administering the grants and monitoring progress. GCAP is on the Selection Panel and advises KPMG on good practice and robust investment strategies, providing in-country experts as required. GCAP is supporting a programmatic strategy that focuses on the nature of evidence to achieve transformation. Most of the BRACED projects would be classified as extensions to conventional development with support for improved agriculture and resource management, climate information applications and nutrition interventions. The extent to which these actions mobilise sufficient resources, buffering capacity and institutional learning to transform communities and their readiness for future climate change is a key concern. Evidence of the impact of BRACED funding on achieving resilience will be collected through the projects. However, the ability to define and measure resilience at this scale and over relatively short time periods remains a significant challenge. GCAP toolkit: • Monitoring, Learning & Evaluation Dashboard • OPTIONS appraisal using multiple attributes • CONTEXT for project development and investment GCAP provides technical assistance to Fund Managers
  6. 6. CLIMATE SAFEGUARDS SYSTEM PROJECT Guidelines and Screening Tools to Mainstream Climate Change in Africa Climate-smart projects in Africa. GCAP led development of the Climate Safeguard System, working closely with the safeguards unit and task mangers to mainstream climate change adaptation into the Bank’s project cycle. The Bank now has the capacity to promote climate-smart projects across its annual expenditure of $2 billion. The CSS illustrates how GCAP develops knowledge-led solutions. The Climate Screening module assesses the vulnerability of a project to climate change using scorecards for each sector. The Adaptation Review and Evaluation Procedures identify adaptation measures for a project. A different set of procedures is followed depending on the category of the project. The CSS uses open source software developed by our partners in Hyderabad, India. The CSS has been ported to the Bank and fully owned by their ICT staff. GCAP continues to develop the modules in its own online Knowledge Space: • ASSESS uses scorecards to screen projects • OPTIONS and APPRAISE evaluate strategies, measures and technologies • CLIMATE interprets three levels of climate change data • Country factsheets Partnering with Atkins brings in-depth technical expertise
  7. 7. CRGEPROJECT Ethiopia Climate Resilience Strategy for Agriculture, Forestry and Land Use Climate Resilient Green Economy. Ethiopia’s vision is to transform its development through investment in a Climate-Resilient Green Economy. GCAP, with our Joint Venture partner in Addis Ababa, GeoSAS, led the Phase 2 climate resilience strategy for agriculture, forestry and land use. The strategy assessed the risks of climate change on key sectors of Ethiopia’s economy and identified priorities for building climate resilience to ensure that Ethiopia reaches its ambitious growth and green economy targets, including taking advantage of the opportunities for implementation. The project pioneered an innovative methodology for the economics of climate resilience including multi-attribute assessment of options and phased strategies. Finance options included scenarios of development funding that shift the Ministry of Agriculture's annual budget of nearly $1 billion from humanitarian crises to sound resource management and transforming the sector. The team worked closely with technical committees in government and developed skills and technical knowledge through two short courses in Ethiopia. GCAP continues to develop the pioneering methodologies behind the CRGE: • OPTIONS appraisal using multi-attribute techniques • Value of climate information in supporting development planning • Adaptation Planning Zones to integrate socio-economic vulnerability and priority strategies Partnering with GeoSAS experts builds national capacity
  8. 8. PROADAPT PROJECT Private Models for Agricultural Climate Adaptation in Honduras and Nicaragua Designing effective projects led by the private sector. PROADAPT, an initiative of the Inter-American Development Bank, has a distinctive mission: to support the private sector in Latin America through technical cooperation to ensure resilience to climate change. GCAP and its Joint Venture partner, Grupo Laera, worked intensively in Honduras and Nicaragua to develop projects in agriculture (cacao, honey, milk) and tourism. Four project concepts were developed based on GCAP’s Climate Resilient Business-Process Methodology. The projects involve supply chains with potential Executing Agencies, cooperatives of producers and business associations. An extensive knowledge base, infographics and summary booklets were delivered to the client. Interactive workshops and a three-week course in Oxford supported in-house capacity in the IDB. A framework for monitoring resilience provided an innovative approach based on the M&E context and private sector management capacity. An online Dashboard was designed to deliver an effective tool for the Bank’s staff and development partners. Innovative tools: • CLIMATE Factsheets • OPTIONS to select actions • MLE Dashboard • Teamwork for sharing documents • Academy modules for stakeholder workshops • Infographics Joint venture with Grupo Laera inspires innovation
