COP27 | Monitoring and measuring adaptation in the context of a climate emergency

November 11, 2022, Sharm el Sheikh

Event at the French Pavilion organised by the French Development Agency (AFD), Expertise France, the Foundation for Studies and Research on International Development (FERDI) and the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI).

The event focused on adaptation to climate change. It was an opportunity to discuss how to measure the exposure of countries and territories to climate change, and the implications for development aid and countries' sustainable development trajectories.

Matthieu Boussichas presented Ferdi's work on a national and a sub-national index of physical vulnerability to climate change (PVCCI) and how the index could be used in the allocation of aid to adaptation between countries and for the distribution of this aid between territories within a country.
