Cost-Benefit Methodology to Value Climate Change Resilience

Cost-Benefit Methodology to Value Climate Change Resilience
Thought Leadership Webinar: Making facilities and operations resilient and adaptable to climate change requires significant additional investments, which must be justified and secured in competition with other priorities. Most cost-benefit methodologies used today to justify and prioritize resilience and adaptation-related projects are ill-suited to capture the correct value of their uncertain climate impact mitigating benefits. Real Options Analysis3 is an analytical and valuation methodology that models explicitly the high level of climate uncertainty and values correctly the cost and benefits of resilience and adaptation projects.

About This Webinar

By properly incorporating and evaluating climate change impact uncertainty and mitigation flexibility, Real Options Analysis can become a critical tool in achieving the following key objectives:

  1. Motivate public and private sector leaders to develop and implement climate change resilience and adaptation projects consistent with their fiduciary duties to investors and other stakeholders
  2. Optimize project design to achieve long-term resilience and adaptability at minimum cost
  3. Create broader and longer-lasting mitigation impact with limited available funding
  4. Reflect the full value of climate resilience and adaptation projects, while reducing their risks and increasing their appeal for stakeholders and investors
  5. Attract additional sources of funding for climate change resilience and adaptation projects
