Climate Risk Screening of Development Portfolios and Programmes

Published on 1 September 2008

Responding to the impact of climate variability and change on poverty, development organisations increasingly acknowledge that climate change poses a strategic risk to its core poverty reduction aims and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) (ADB et al, 2003; DFID 2006; UNDP 2007).

For development cooperation donor agencies, climate change also poses a fiduciary risk by potentially compromising the effectiveness of the investments of public funds in poverty reduction around the world.
