The international community has long agreed on the importance of making gender issues a core consideration in international and domestic policy processes. However, in practice, the gender dimension of development, adaptation and mitigation projects has often been ignored or overlooked. When development and climate-related projects do give attention to gender, the discourse tends to focus on two predominant themes. Women are seen as more vulnerable to disaster risks and threats to livelihoods. At the same time they are often portrayed as having a more environmentally-friendly behaviour than men. Therefore, it is fundamental to focus on the proactive role that integrating a gender dimension into climate change adaptation and mitigation can play, in terms of achieving development results that are sustainable, low-carbon and equitable. To achieve this, climate-related projects must be delivered in ways that improve the respective capacities of women and men to respond and adapt to the impacts of climate change in their specific contexts, and thus also to benefit from development progress. Our research addressed major knowledge gaps in relation to the gender dimension of climate change mitigation, adaptation, and development.

The ultimate purpose of risk identification and analysis is to prepare for risk mitigation. This chapter discusses the importance of risk mitigation planning and describes approaches to reducing or mitigating project risks. Risk management planning needs to be an ongoing effort that cannot stop after a qualitative risk assessment, or a Monte Carlo simulation, or the setting of contingency levels.
BCP involves defining any and all risks that can affect the company’s to ensure they work; Reviewing the process to make sure that it is up to date will identify functions and related resources that are time-sensitive. (More.
But estimating the cost of equity causes a lot of head scratching; often the result is subjective and therefore open to question as a reliable benchmark. This article describes a method for arriving at that figure, a method […]. This article describes a method for arriving at that figure, a method spawned in the rarefied atmosphere of financial theory.
The capital asset pricing model CAPM is an idealized portrayal of how financial markets price securities and thereby determine expected returns on capital investments. The model provides a methodology for quantifying risk and translating that risk into estimates of expected return on equity. A principal advantage of CAPM is the objective nature of the estimated costs of equity that the model can yield. CAPM cannot be used in isolation because it necessarily simplifies the world of financial markets.
Building a Gender and Age-Sensitive Approach to Refugee Protection
It includes a summarized review of key concepts and policy issues and of selected project formulation and appraisal methods which can be used to incorporate natural hazard information into investment project preparation. A review of existing investment projects in Latin America and the Caribbean indicates that those in the agricultural sector are generally undertaken with little or no consideration of natural hazards.
Hazards affect agricultural projects more than any other sector. A combination of geographic location, climatic conditions, and limited capabilities for natural hazard assessment and disaster mitigation makes Third World nations more susceptible to the disasters natural hazard events pose than post-industrialized nations.
Furthermore, the agricultural sector in these countries is often the most vulnerable and least able to cope with natural hazards in terms of infrastructure and institutional support. In the following discussion, emphasis is placed on the need to apply the methods described in the formulation stage of new investment projects, rather than in the review of already prepared projects.

The simplest form of quantification of risk is by applying optimism bias contingencies to costs or timeframes to reflect the systematic tendency for project teams to be over-optimistic about key parameters. The adjustments can be based on past empirical experience of similar projects and should be reduced at different stages of the business case development as progressively better estimates are made. While simple, the disadvantages are that it reflects downside risks only and is unlikely to effectively manage or mitigate risks.
An expected value can be calculated for each significant risk by multiplying the likelihood of the risk occurring probability by the size of the consequence. This risk premium is expressed in monetary terms and provides an estimate of the cost of accepting all the risk. It is best used when both the likelihood and consequence of the risk event can be estimated reasonably well. The disadvantage is that it provides no information about the underlying variability in outcomes or consequences, particularly at the extremes when decision-makers may prefer not to accept the risk of the event occurring.

How sensitive are your project resources? I’m not asking whether your team members cried at their best friend’s wedding, I’m asking if you know how different resources affect your overall schedule. The conventional approaches to resource scheduling are called resource levelling and resource smoothing.

This document reports on a research aiming at a more gender-sensitive approach to disaster risk reduction DRR in Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands. It gives insight on the situations in which women and men, girls and boys live in three selected communities in both countries. It provides information about their local behaviour patterns, belief and value systems, their daily life routines etc. The first part of the report informs about the background of the research and its context.
It contains the objectives, a description about the methodology and the general context of the research. The next parts concentrate on the roles and capacities of women and men in food production and income generation as well as on Early Warning Systems, relating to communication systems and adaptation of early warning messages. The next two chapters focus on the commitment to gender mainstreaming on 1 the organizational level, as well as 2 the programming level.

Risk Impact Assessment and Prioritization
This guide has a complementary e-learning course which aims to give you information on conducting a PIA in an easy-to-understand format so that you can have the confidence to do a PIA in your organisation or agency. This guide also has an accompanying PIA tool to help you conduct a PIA, report its findings and respond to recommendations. Entities are encouraged to take a flexible approach and adapt this tool to suit the size, complexity and risk level of their project.

Raising public and programmatic awareness of the special needs of women and children has been critical to ensuring that resources and responses have been appropriately deployed. In fact, women’s advocates have systematically raised this issue in humanitarian circles for more than two decades. There is more work to do, however, to guarantee not only that services continue but also that they are tailored to meet the diverse needs of individual refugees in various refugee settings.
For a variety of reasons, women and girls are facing special risks. In broad terms, women are often responsible for shouldering a great deal of the responsibility for their family’s continued survival, a burden that is heavier for refugee women. Beyond this, sexual abuse and gender-based violence, including domestic violence, are continuing concerns.
For girls, too, lack of education can further exacerbate these other forms of vulnerability. Yet, at a certain point, understanding that women and children compose the majority of refugees may obscure the finer diversity of experience in individual refugee settings. Indeed, women and children, like men and children, necessarily make up the majority of any population since, as a demographic fact, women make up roughly 50 percent of any normal population.
Sensitivity analysis in resource scheduling
Business continuity planning BCP is the process involved in creating a system of prevention and recovery from potential threats to a company. The plan ensures that personnel and assets are protected and are able to function quickly in the event of a disaster. The BCP is generally conceived in advance and involves input from key stakeholders and personnel.
BCP involves defining any and all risks that can affect the company’s operations, making it an important part of the organization’s risk management strategy. Risks may include natural disasters—fire, flood, or weather-related events—and cyber-attacks.

A context-sensitive approach in Myanmar is helping to avoid negative impacts and maximize positive results of development projects and programs. Myanmar is undergoing a historic transformation toward democracy, a market economy, and peace and stability. When ADB recommenced operations in Myanmar in after an absence of nearly 25 years, it began to develop a context-sensitive approach to better understand the challenging environment in which ADB would design and implement its projects and the potential impacts ADB activities could have within this complex dynamic.
ADB has a number of investment projects and grants in areas that are only recently emerging from active conflict, where parallel government and nonstate service delivery systems exist, where non-state armed groups continue to control territory and exert control, and where trust between government and communities is fragile and nascent. A context-sensitive approach is acting with an understanding of the complex historical and contemporary environment within which any initiative is conducted and the potential impact and interaction any activity may have on that context.
It is a deliberate and systematic approach to ensure that ADB understands and minimises negative effects and risks and maximise positive effects. A context-sensitive approach is a tool for ADB to improve the quality of projects in Myanmar. A context-sensitive approach at policy, country programming and project level allows staff to integrate risk mitigation strategies at early stages to improve designs, strategies and program specific actions that will improve project management and decrease reputation risk to ADB.
