Assessing the Economic Impact of Climate Change

03 Jul 2013


This report is part of an ongoing UNDP effort to develop the analytical and institutional capacity of countries in transition to estimate the economic impacs of climate change and identify areas where adaptation may be necessary. This report offers preliminary estimates of the economic impacts of climate change in three areas important for the economy - energy demand, water resources related to electricity production, and agriculture. Having a better idea of the economic impacts will make it possible to them better assess options for becoming more climate-resilient.
