Development of socio-economic scenarios and analysis of vulnerability and climate risks for the identification of adaptation solutions at the national, sectoral and subnational level in the Dominican Republic

The objective of this project is to increase and update the knowledge base on socio-economic scenarios in the context of climate change for the Dominican Republic, prioritising economic, environmental, globalisation and regionalisation approaches.

The project also seeks to strengthen national capacities in the development of climate vulnerability and risk assessments and the identification of adaptation solutions, through comprehensive and quantified assessment and other substantive analysis on the impacts of climate variability and change, both for the economy and growth prospects and for the most vulnerable sectors. In addition, through the provision of information on adaptation options, estimating preliminary costs and short-, medium- and long-term benefits, including an assessment of cross-sectoral integration and its multiplier effect.

Finally, support is provided to project strategies to raise awareness among decision-makers, national, provincial, and local officials and the general public on the socio-economic scenarios, impacts, vulnerability and risk of climate change and the development opportunities created by the identified adaptation options.
