Excerpt

"This report showcases a pilot vulnerability, risk, and adaptation assessment undertaken for Albania‘s energy sector to raise awareness and initiate dialogue on energy sector adaptation. A bottom-up, stakeholder-based, qualitative/semi-quantitative risk-assessment approach is used to discuss and identify risks, adaptation measures, and their costs and benefits. It draws on experience and published guidance from the United Kingdom and Australia, as well as existing research and literature. The climate vulnerability assessment framework puts stakeholders at the heart of the decision-making process and involves:

  • Climate risk screening of the energy sector to identify and prioritize hazards, current vulnerabilities, and risks from projected climate changes out to the year 2050.
  • Identification of adaptation options to reduce overall vulnerability.
  • A high-level cost benefit analysis of key physical adaptation options." (The World Bank 2009)
