World Bank and Adaptation Tools & FinancesIan Noble

From Rhetoric to Action on Adaptation

investments in developing countries
Investments in Developing Countries
  • For every $1M in investment GEF has $60 for adaptation
analysis of wb portfolio
Analysis of WB portfolio
  • World Bank approves over 400 projects per year
  • Leading to $21B per year in loans and grants
  • 40% of these project include climate sensitive components
  • $4B of portfolio is at risk
  • Only 2% of project design documents explicitly mention climate variability or change
approach to adaptation in the world bank
Approach to Adaptation in the World Bank
  • Attempt to influence the design of projects and thus the flow of Bank lending and granting
  • We will prioritise areas of initial action according to criteria that include
      • Immediacy of threat
      • Numbers of people at risk
      • Capacity to achieve effective adaptation
  • Continue to learn from specific pilots
approach to adaptation in wb
Approach to Adaptation in WB
  • Raise awareness within Bank of the risk posed to our portfolio
    • Using carrot rather than a stick approach
    • Focus on PSRPs and CASs (and CEAs) – i.e. the project planning tools
approach to adaptation in wb7
Approach to Adaptation in WB
  • Provide tools so that project designers and managers (Bank & partner country) can address climate variability and change issues
    • Do this cooperatively with other institutions
    • Current emphasis
      • First level, qualitative screening tool to identify risks
      • Agriculture & water sector quantitative tools for assessing impacts of actions / in-action
approach to adaptation in wb11
Approach to Adaptation in WB
  • Seek novel approaches to funding adaptation
    • If CC reduces growth in Developing Countries by 0.5% per year the approximate cost is $70B per year
    • Global tax on ????
  • Seek novel uses of the funds
    • Right now move more funds to capacity maintenance rather than capacity re-building
adaptation in the bank
Adaptation in the Bank
  • Climate change is already a threat to development
  • A climate risk management approach(tackle current climate variability and climate change)
  • Learn through research & engagement in ongoing projects
  • Develop good practice guidance and tools for project designers
  • Maintain capacity in Bank & countries
  • Goal to treat climate volatility as an essential part of development planning
