Summary: The World Bank Group launched its Action Plan on Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience on January 15, 2019. Under the plan, the World Bank will ramp up direct adaptation climate finance to reach $50 billion over FY21–25. A cornerstone of the Action Plan is a new emphasis on scaling up upstream support to Ministries of Finance and Planning to better analyze and manage climate risks and opportunities, and their growth, poverty and fiscal implications. This objective will be achieved through the introduction of guidelines, processes and frameworks for climate-informed macroeconomic modeling, climate-sensitive appraisals for public investment management, climate budgeting, and resilient public financial management. Join us for an overview of this Action Plan and a discussion on the World Bank Governance Global Practice’s application of the “Resilient Governance Framework” in the Caribbean region, which facilitates:

 

  • Adaptation. Public Investment and Asset Management Plans that streamline risk and resilience at the portfolio level and identify the appropriate protection mechanisms for different classes of public assets
  • Response. PFM systems and protocols that facilitate the mobilization, execution, and monitoring of resources in the event of a disaster
  • Recovery & Reconstruction. Government Continuity Frameworks to fortify the core information systems (National ID, payment systems, archives and records, etc.) and the institutional arrangements (communication and coordination mechanisms) to ensure continued delivery of critical public services.
