More specifically, the study is to include at a country level:

    1. Impact Assessment: substantive analysis to develop a comprehensive and quantified assessment of the economic impacts of climate variability and change. The impact analysis should emphasize climate effects both on economy and prospects for growth, as well as on the poorer and more vulnerable sections of society (specifically via the MDGs).

Costed Options for Mitigation and Adaptation: analysis of the costs and benefits of climate change mitigation and adaptation in the short, medium and long term, including an assessment of regional interdependence and its consequential multiplier effect. (Time horizons may be informed by country planning processes, e.g. 2020, 2025 and 2030. For adaptation use of the MDG 2015 target may be helpful).
