Making Climate Adaptation Finance Work for Developing Countries

Developing and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) keep struggling to access sufficient funding for their adaptation to the adverse effects of climate change. Working towards more and better climate adaptation finance would require scaling up and easing their access to existing funds, particulartly those dedicated to adaptation. This paper analyses recent developments in climate adaptation finance mechanisms, particularly at the Paris and Marakkesh conferences of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
