Climate change impacts, such as sea level rise, flooding, and drought, threaten renewable energy generation, particularly hydropower due to the necessary proximity of power stations to water sources. As a result, energy security and the ability of countries to meet their greenhouse gas reduction targets may be compromised.
Many countries face the challenge of strengthening and expanding electricity generation and infrastructure while incorporating climate resilience and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets into long-term power planning.
This is the second blog in a two-part series detailing the Climate Finance Readiness Program (CF Ready), a program implemented by GIZ that receives joint support from USAID and the Ministry for Environment of the Czech Republic on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
