ITC’s Climate and Environmental Risk Assessment (CERA) approach maps out the climate-related risks and opportunities based on a literature review, analysis of trade and environment data and key informant interviews with agribusiness, farm organizations and policy makers. The analysis is structured along the three stages of the value chain: inputs, production and processing.
It provides a summary overview, detailed analysis of physical and transitional risks and emerging opportunities in the environmental marketplace. CERA rates the level of risk and proposes priority actions to mitigate these risks. It shows the financial impact of these risks and opportunities on agri-business and smallholder livelihoods.
