7 Catalyzing adaptation finance in developing countries

8 SCALE OF FINANCE FOR ADAPTATION “Additional” Funding Needs  $2.129 b (Urgent and Immediate Priorities - NAPA s)  $30-100 b/year for period 2010-2050 (WDR 2010)  $290 b/year (Parry et all 2009)  $326 - $355 b/year for financing adaptation options on natural ecosystems) (Source: Berry 2007) Mainly infrastructure Estimates are likely an underestimate! Catalyzing Adaptation Finance Present Level of Assistance  Approx. USD $140-175b & $70-100 b/year for 2010-2050 (mainly for mitigation)  Vertical Funds (for adaptation; LDCF/SCCF/AF): less than $1.0b to-date cumulatively Copenhagen Accord- $100b/year additional finance by 2020 (50% of this for adaptation)

9 (a)Enhance the capacity of policy makers to identify appropriate mix of public instruments including public finance to catalyze larger private investments (b)Create an enabling environment including national/sub-national/ sectoral policy frameworks, domestic technical expertize, financing channels, and administrative procedures (c)Attract innovative finance to provide additional financial incentives UNDP-GEF Services to Catalyze Adaptation Finance Catalyzing Adaptation Finance In support of inclusive and green growth, reduction of inequalities via Green, Low Emission Climate Resilient Development (II) to identify barriers to priority investments (III) identify risks generated by these barriers that prevent the requisite investment (IV) what are the de-risking instruments (V) What are source of finance to support de-risking strategy (I) Assist Governments (e.g. through national adaptation plans) to identify priorities from perspective of: (a)preserving existing infrastructure, businesses and livelihoods; (b)new business opportunities (c)no regret options

10 Generating Private Sector Investment

11 Private sector increasingly important  The main drivers of private sector investment will be: Preserving existing infrastructure, businesses and livelihoods (E.g. SMEs currently engaged in rural agri-businesses, climate resilient infrastructure) Developing new businesses (E.g. business diversification such new microfinance/insurance products, off-farm employment in new markets, mobile phone operators and climate information dissemination) No-regret investments (adaptation is an ancillary benefit) (E.g. coastal communities develop mangrove belts increase incomes and meet energy needs and protects shorelines from expected coastal hazards (storm surges, etc.)

12 “Bottom-up” quantification of costs - Investment and Financial Flows 16 countries Bangladesh, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Gambia, Honduras, Liberia, Namibia, Niger, Paraguay, Peru, Togo, Turkmenistan, Uruguay  39 I&FF assessments completed since 2008

13 Assessing Investment & Financial flows for Adaptation in the AGRICULTURE Sector UNDP I&FF Methodology Guidebook: Adaptation

14 Define adaptation scenario Adaptation options in the agriculture sector Type of MeasureComponent of Agriculture Sector Adaptation Measure Field-levelCrop Production (including production of human food crops, fodder, industrial crops, & biofuels) Change crop species/varieties Moisture management/irrigation Pest & disease management Fire management Livestock (including both animal management & grazing land management) Change animal species/breeds Change in animal management Change in pasture management Moisture management/irrigation Management of natural areas Research, education, assistance, infrastructure, institutional Sector-wideResearch, extension & training Forecasting & disaster management Trade policy

15 Derive I&FF for adaptation scenario Project I&FF associated with the Adaptation Scenario Adding costs to adaptation scenario Cumulative infrastructure (2005-2030) Unit cost Facility/Technology Drought-resistant seeds(# units purchased)(2005 $/unit) Machinery(# tractors etc.)(2005 $/piece) Fertilizer(# kg purchased)(2005 $/kf) Irrigation channels(# meters installed)(2005 $/meter) Total

18 Examples from Costa Rica Total cumulative sum of investments (2010-2030) in biodiversity sector, by investment type Annual incremental cost of investments (2010-2030) for biodiversity & water sectors Biodiversity Water Baseline Adaptation scenario Difference

19 Takeaways: View I&FF Results In Context The I&FF assessments are not a mere costing exercise, but an analysis of the whole financial landscape of a sector All countries used same I&FF methodology, but decided individually what sectors to select & what measures to analyze within each sector  scope (& discount rate) has impact on the results Results comparable with those of World Bank- Economics of Adaptation to Climate Change & UNFCCC - National Economic, Environment & Development Study (NEEDS)

20 Takeaways: sectoral considerations Incremental costs may seem large, but must be considered within context of planned baseline expenditures, e.g. in Peru, baseline for agriculture was US$5,435 million, while adaptation scenario was US$ 5,759 million  incremental cost US$324 million (↑ 6%) Often results show I&FF shifts are necessary, e.g. from one technology to another, one subsector to another, while additional incremental investments are required Savings from implementing measures possible: often in energy mitigation due to increased energy efficiency  low-hanging fruit for policy makers?  what policy/ incentive mix would encourage uptake of these mitigation measures?

21 IFF Results: Headline numbers in EAB countries Country-level baseline and reference scenario costs for sectoral adaptation through to 2030 Peru: ecosystem management costs for agriculture in San Martín: US$ 65.8 million, and Junín: US$ 75.4 million Ecosystem-based integrated water resource management US$ 638.1 million Nepal: capacity building process National issues papers – Glacial Lake Outburst Flooding

22 "Assessing Costs and Benefits of Adaptation: Methods and Data” 2-year Capacity Building Programme on the Economics of Climate Change Adaptation Bangladesh, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam Water and agriculture adaptation projects used as case studies for the application of cost-benefit analysis Mentors assigned to provide technical support to country teams on data collection, project and sectoral evaluations Training on Cost–benefit Analysis

23 Nepal Case Studies Water project selected as case study: Kalleritar Irrigation System, funded by Asian Development Bank (during rehabilitation stage) and led by Government of Nepal Agriculture project: Cost Benefit analysis of Paddy production in the Community Managed Irrigated Agriculture Sector Project- Dhading District The team aims to undertake a nation-wide (250 -300 observations) primary data collection for agriculture sectoral analysis The team will conduct secondary water collection in the Khani Khola watershed for the water sector analysis.

24 Guide Questions For Case Studies 1.What project are you going to study for the CBA? What is the geographic scope of the project? 2.What actions on the ground are involved in this project? What alternative actions could be taken that would address these problems at this site, including no action at all? 3.List (but do not quantify) the costs of each action and the benefits of each action. 4.How will you quantify the amount and timing of each cost and benefit? 5.Quantify the individual cost and benefit for each action each year.

25 Climate change public expenditure review

26 CPEIR Methodology Cross government Steering group led by Finance and Planning Ministries Public Expenditure Reviews (of World Bank) Review of policies and institutions Quantity and quality of climate expenditure: Review whole budget Expert assessment of climate “relevance” Action plans for implementation Sectoral focus: Local government (Bangladesh, Nepal), Transport (Cambodia and Samoa), Irrigation (Thailand)

27 Policy and Institutions Link Budget to climate policy: so climate part of budget framework and performance measures Large development projects made climate resilient Local government key channel for climate finance Disaster Risk institutions better linked to climate Challenges: positive and negative expenditure, perverse incentives Challenges: private sector expenditure

28 ComponentsLead Agency 1. Development of methodologies and tools for EbA decision-making in mountain ecosystems UNEP 2. Application of methodologies and tools at ecosystem level UNEP 3. Implementation of EbA pilots at ecosystem level IUCN/UNDP 4. Development of business case for EbA at the national level UNDP EBA in Mountain Ecosystems


30 Making the case for EBA What do we want to do? We want to make the case to government to: a.use EBA approaches as part of the suite of options to manage climate risk effectively in mountain regions b.enhance enabling environments for scaling- up EBA more broadly as part of climate risk management strategies How can we do this? 1.Assess costs and benefits of EBA options in key sectors in mountain regions (including evidence from sites) 2.Produce policy papers that guide strategies and resource allocation in sectors 3. Make the case to government through steering committee 4.Develop and complete a Policy and Financing Framework for EBA scale-up beyond mountain regions

31 Analysis of Needs and Opportunities in Peru EBA Project There is a need for specific tools to help government adapt existing policies and finance mechanisms to incorporate ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation and risk management This applies particularly to public investment, where there are opportunities to feed into current processes (PACC, IPAC, Green Investment) to adjust for additional demands of addressing climate variability In this context there is a need to broaden existing typologies of public investment to incorporate EBA-type interventions - including guidelines, justification for them, and evaluation criteria for proposed interventions Examples of interventions are EBA approaches to water resource management in high altitude pastures, or managing water levels in glacial lakes at risk of flooding There is also a need to explore how ongoing operating costs of EBA can be financed (in addition to capital investment)

32 Analysis of Needs and Opportunities contd Detailed costing of all potential EBA work / quantification of an EBA finance "gap" would not be likely to be used by government. What is particularly needed is quantification of benefits in relation to costs so that the potential rate of return on state investment can be calculated. Comparative cost benefit analyses of nature-based (green) vs engineered (grey) options for addressing vulnerabilities in mountain ecosystems could be very useful, where feasible. Where an engineered alternative does not exist, establishing unit costs / cost coefficients is still useful, as well as analysing benefits. Benefits analysed should include the full range, with an emphasis on socio-economic benefits to people that can be reflected in market values, and that tie in with rural development objectives. New data and evidence generated in the pilot site in Nor-Yauyos Cochas Reserve, incorporating local knowledge, could be powerful in feeding into this analysis, along with data from other cases. Selected private sector role-players (e.g. hydroelectric, mining) may also be able to use the tools we develop to guide corporate social investment.

33 Potential Focus for Component 4 in Peru Develop a toolkit together with and for use by the Peruvian Ministry of Economy and Finance, providing a typology and guidelines for public investment in EBA Identify several investment types for EBA to vulnerabilities in mountain ecosystems For each type, develop a set of products: Technical guidelines on intervention (and alternative where relevant) Case study from EBA Component 3 / other work in Peru / elsewhere Cost-benefit analysis (and alternative where relevant) Presentation on outcomes for key role-players Training module with material and presentations
