Please refer to the message below from Silvia Escudero, Project Manager of the EU Energy Initiative Partnership Dialogue Facility (EUEI PDF):
The EU Energy Initiative Partnership Dialogue Facility (EUEI-PDF) just launched a new study on Energy and Climate Change Adaptation in Developing Countries.
The whole value chain of the energy system – generation, transmission, distribution, as well as consumption – is being increasingly impacted by climate events. Droughts and floods are significantly affecting hydropower generation output. Transmission and distribution lines are at risk of storm and cyclone induced damage, which could cause expensive power outages. Energy demand is also set to increase as the warmer climate will call for additional cooling needs. From the estimated financing needs of $100 billion a year for climate adaptation, not even 10% are being disbursed.
Targeting energy and climate stakeholders, in particular the donor community, the Energy and Climate Adaptation Study highlights the need for action in the cross-sectoral field of energy and climate change adaptation. The study analyses the impacts of climate change in the different market segments of the energy sector with a strong focus on the power sector. In a second step, a number of opportunities and key areas for action in order to build a resilient energy sector are presented.
We appreciate you sharing the study with interested colleagues and welcome feedback!
