Guiding Principles for the Preparation of Financing Strategies for Climate Change Adaptation in Developing Countries
12 September 2023
Financing strategies for adaptation are increasingly being prepared by developing countries to help fund the actions they want to take to reduce the increasingly negative impacts of climate change on their citizens and economies. There is limited guidance, though, on how to ensure that these strategies achieve their end goal: increasing the amount of financing being invested in developing countries' prioritized adaptation actions.This report identifies seven guiding principles that could inform developing country governments’ efforts to prepare financing strategies for adaptation. These principles are developed based on a review of existing financing strategies for adaptation and input from experts engaged in their development. They help guide the process by which these strategies are prepared and determine the content included within them.
