The objective of the assignment was to assess the costs of environmental degradation (COED) associated with the impacts of climate change in Chad.
Countries in the Middle East and North Africa region were highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Climate change has amplified fragility in an already unstable region and has added to the region’s environmental challenges.
The COED is a measure of the loss in a nation’s welfare due to degradation associated with climate change impacts. The estimation of the cost of environmental degradation was based on identifying the impacts of environmental degradation and estimating these impacts in monetary terms.
To this end, Metroeconomica analysed the potential impacts of climate change associated with sea level rise, heat increase, precipitation change, etc., in Chad around 2030 and 2050. The consultancy carried out different tasks such as literature review, global databases, available international and regional models, etc., to identify the impacts of climate change in Chad. Based on this, scenarios for the analysis of the cost of environmental degradation in Chad were developed to quantify the environmental degradation associated with climate change. Impacts were estimated in monetary terms.
