Financing, Adaptation & Mitigation

INTRODUCTION understanding the planning process

ISSUES
Horizontal integration into existing planning system /structure different national governance structures Can this tool be used for investment planning across spatial jurisdictions? Adaptation technologies and associated costs to be built into the tool ex. Sea level rise, saline intrusion What is the value we should use for building above sea level? precision of information Build sea level-rise scenario

POTENTIAL APPLICATION OF THE TOOL


Vulnerability assessment Requirement: applicability at spatial levels national regional province city / urban Prioritization of projects based on cost-benefits analysis Requirement: information on costs of projects detailed FS Institutional change as basis of discussion of funding options

INFORMATION INPUT/OUTPUT
Cost of adaptation technologies Scenarios (causes impacts) ---- Cost Matrix from low risk to high risk scenarios (with probability index) Scientific information as basis for financing options Trend forecasting timeline Simulation Pilot / demonstration projects for short-term projects
