Adaptation: Get the connection

A national interplay of adaptation actors is important: How to track its progress?

Cover Tracking Paper

For the past five years the Adaptation Fund NGO Network has been dedicating its work on accompanying projects carried out under the mandate of the Adaptation Fund. However, it is the reality that this is not sufficient to ensure a path towards rights-based adaptation funding and climate resiliency in our partner countries. This paper has the objective to look beyond the Adaptation Fund projects, particular assessing the state and level of interplay between different implementing and financing entities of adaptation projects being active in the same country.

This paper provides readers / users with a toolkit that helps them to assess such interplay dimension as well as to what extent good adaptation is being practiced by different actors. Its easy-to-use scorecards will help readers / users formulating political recommendations regarding a more coherent approach towards climate change adaptation. Ultimately, those political recommendations are aimed at initiating and steering a national discussion about the overall interplay between different implementing and financing entities of adaptation projects with particular attention to and for the benefits of vulnerable groups and communities.
