Assess climate risk
Climate risk assessments identify the likelihood of current and future climate hazards and their impacts. For an assessment to be done, up to date data on current and projected future climate related hazards and vulnerabilities is needed, which needs to be collected and maintained. These risk assessments need to be prepared in collaboration with other assessments of risks related to disasters and sustainable development. The risk assessments need to be a living document involving the relevant decision-makers, who also need to become aware of and understand the risks and how they are best addressed. Assessing risks can inform current and future investment decisions and prioritization of climate action.
Before beginning a risk assessment, the organization in charge needs to establish goals and aims of the assessment, carry out a stakeholder analysis, as well as make a review of existing resources and data. Risk assessments can be done at various levels; national, regional and local, and for different sectors and organizations. Several overviews exist of how to carry out a climate risk assessment.
