A cost-benefit analysis of climate change adaptation measures for Ethiopia
As many other countries, Ethiopia has recognized adaptation to climate change as an important building block of its climate change strategy. But so far there is very little guidance for countries on how to actually operationalize their adaptation goals. Moreover, a comprehensive analysis of the costs and benefits of different adaptation measures to climate change in Ethiopia are currently lacking.
Therefore, we are very happy to announce that, after winning an EU-wide public tender, we have just been subcontracted by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of the different agricultural adaptation measures in Ethiopia.
Our work will be an input to the AGRICA project, which is financed by the German International Cooperation Agency (GIZ) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The project’s goal is to support Ethiopian government and development actors in prioritizing their adaptation investments.
We are looking forward to combining PIK’s outstanding expertise in climate change projections and impact research for crop production with our longstanding experience in conducting cost-benefit analyses in the agricultural and development sector.
