Cge findings l.jpg
CGE Findings

  • Difficulties in applying the IPCC technical guidelines due to: suitability of methods and tools, lack of national capacities to apply them, lack of data, lack of institutional frameworks and financial resources

  • Few information on extreme events and their relation to CC. Need for assistance for disaster preparedness

  • Difficulties to dissociate impacts from CC and from climate variability

UNFCCC Workshop on the use of the guidelines, Mauritius, 8-11 april 2003


Cge findings5 l.jpg
CGE Findings

  • Limitations of climate change scenarios (spatial resolution problems)

  • Insufficient consideration for socio-economic and environmental scenarios

  • Lack of impacts models, especially for health, human settlements, terrestrial ecosystems, tourism

  • Uncertainties (time frames)

UNFCCC Workshop on the use of the guidelines, Mauritius, 8-11 april 2003


Cge findings6 l.jpg
CGE Findings

  • New tools for integrated assessment, policy development and decision support

  • Identification and evaluation of specific adaptation strategies not adequatly addressed by the guidelines; insufficient consideration of traditional adaptation options

  • Limited assessment of adaptation options (lists of measures qualitatively assessed), no costing, prioritization

UNFCCC Workshop on the use of the guidelines, Mauritius, 8-11 april 2003


Cge findings7 l.jpg
CGE Findings

  • Adaptation options better addressed in limited sectors: agriculture, water ressources, coastal zones

  • Integration of adaptation in long term planning

  • Adaptation at a regional or sub-regional level

  • Lack of data useful for V&A studies

UNFCCC Workshop on the use of the guidelines, Mauritius, 8-11 april 2003


Cge findings8 l.jpg
CGE Findings

  • Inadequate institutional arrangements
