    The German Federal Environment Agency is currently conducting a research and development project entitled "Adaptation Frameworks". An essential work package of the project is the technical development of a so-called climate damage register, understood as a methodology to be able to record climate change-related damage and costs systematically and within a reasonable period of time after the event. In doing so, both insured damages and non-insured, monetary as well as extended damages (e.g. ecosystem services) should be taken into account. Of particular relevance is the differentiation of 'climate change' from other influencing factors.

    The project started at the end of 2020. Currently, possible data sources are being researched and a technical proposal is being developed. Subsequently, it is planned to reflect on this with relevant circles and possible data suppliers - in particular authorities, science and the insurance industry. Furthermore, the methodology will be applied prototypically to recent loss events within the framework of the project.

    The project will run until the end of 2023 and will present a final report. This report will also present the methodology and structure of the register. The report will then be regularly published by the Federal Environment Agency.
