Seminar Climate Proofing of Infrastructure Investments Kurzbeschreibung Developing countries, emerging economies, and investment banks are investing billions in durable infrastructure every year. However, they often fail to take account of future climate change in their planning. As a result, new infrastructure projects (e.g. from the agriculture, transportation, or energy sector) are being implemented without consideration of climate change risks. This leads to high potential for damage, loss and misguided investment with potentially serious consequences for the economy and society. For this reason, infrastructure adapted to the impacts of climate change is one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. From this starting point, this training aims to instruct participants in how to take climate-related risks into consideration, when planning investments into infrastructure. Course Objectives: The overall objective of the training course is to provide participants with a sound knowledge on how to assess and reduce climate-related risks for infrastructure investments. This training focuses on methodological aspects of climate proofing and participants will learn via a case study about the infrastructure investment process, existing tools to assess climate risks, and about options to integrate climate change adaptation in infrastructure projects. At the end of the course, participants will be able to analyse infrastructure projects with regard to climate change risks, threats, and opportunities. Course Content: • Identification of entry points for climate risk reduction within the infrastructure investment process • Performance of a risk assessment to identify underlying reasons for climate risk within your infrastructure investment • Identification of adaptation and mitigation options and entry points in infrastructure projects, incl. mainstreaming of identified climate change response options • Simple cost-benefit analyses in the context of climate change response options for infrastructure investments.
