The Ministry of Economic Development has approved new methodological recommendations for federal and regional executive authorities and business representatives on assessing possible damage from the impact of climate change. The recommendations establish a unified approach to assessing possible damage from the impact of climate change. The agency also clarified the recommendations for assessing the effectiveness of adaptation measures to climate change.

The Ministry of Economic Development proposed that federal authorities and regions use a new approach to calculating damage and assessing climate risks, which is based on the results of work on the creation of the Russian climate monitoring system. One of the areas of scientific research is the study of issues of adaptation to climate change.

The recommendations provide a unified classification of climate-vulnerable objects (for example, buildings that may be threatened by floods or landslides) and systematize measures for adaptation to climate change. The events will help to accurately assess the damage from the consequences of climate change for the Russian economy and develop the necessary measures to minimize such damage or avoid it altogether.

Adaptation to climate change is an important area of Russian climate policy. The effects of climate change cause significant direct material damage to infrastructure, as well as negative impacts on human health and well-being. Climate change is happening more and more intensely and requires preparedness on the part of federal and regional executive authorities for various scenarios of its consequences, as well as a deeper understanding of what measures need to be taken and how much resources will be required in response to these challenges to minimize damage.

Until the 3rd quarter of 2024, it is planned that authorities and enterprises will assess possible damage from the impact of climate risks, including those related to climate change in economic sectors, in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. The assessment will help adjust existing responses to the threats of climate change, prioritize areas where there is the greatest risk of damage from climate change, and make appropriate changes to adaptation plans if necessary.

In order to provide methodological support to federal and regional executive authorities as they carry out work to assess possible damage from the impact of climate change and assess the effectiveness of measures to adapt to climate change, the Russian Ministry of Economic Development will organize an expert seminar to explain the provisions of the approved methodological recommendations.

Federal and regional executive authorities can send questions on methodological recommendations and their application to the email of the Department of Competition, Energy Efficiency and Environment of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia climate@economy.gov.ru.
