Climate Risk Case Studies
The International Finance Corporation (IFC) CCU Adaptation Program (AP) invites Consultant firms to indicate their interest to undertake an assignment to elaborate case studies focused on climate risks to private sector investments. As an overview of the AP, please find a note describing the program.
IFC has initiated a series of assessments of the risks posed by climate change to private sector investments. Part of a larger Adaptation Program, the case studies will be used to help produce an initial understanding of direct and indirect risks, their implications, and their relationship to financial performance.
The overall goal of the Program is to develop general tools and methodologies to assess financial risks and opportunities resulting from the impact of climate change that could affect the private sector, and to evaluate appropriate adaptation responses. The Program will also aim to analyze the larger role of private sector adaptation opportunities and its relation to public sector initiatives.
Scope of Work
An indicative, but not exhaustive, list of scope of works includes:
- Elaboration of detailed results that address direct and indirect risks and opportunities that climate change poses to analyzed projects, and proposal of appropriate adaptation measures.
- Contribution of cumulative knowledge towards elaboration of generalized tools and methodologies to assess financial risks and opportunities resulting from the impact of climate change that could affect the private sector, and to evaluate appropriate adaptation responses.
