Key Findings

Executive Summary

If your CSO wants to engage in a meaningful debate about adaptation, you need to gather evidence on the strengths and weaknesses of current adaptation finance structures. You can obtain this data by tracking adaptation finance and assessing the roles of various institutions in delivering adaptation finance to communities. You can then use the information in a number of ways:

  • Helping vulnerable communities realize their rights

  • Teaching communities and citizens about adaptation and adaptation finance

  • Pressing the government to improve its efforts to address climate change

  • Holding donors and governments accountable for their use of funds

  • Supporting government agencies, particularly those with oversight functions, to carry out their mandate
