Adaptation: Accelerating action towards a climate resilient future
This working paper contributes to adaptation knowledge from the perspective of climate financing. It provides an overview of adaptation and resilience challenges, the distinction between them, and discusses the avenues that GCF is developing to tackle them, together with countries and many stakeholders including the private sector. Ultimately, it is hoped that this paper will inform the design and scaling up of more successful adaptation investments.
Through focused investments in these interlinked sectors, based upon national adaptation policies and plans, we hope GCF can catalyse a paradigm shift in the way countries respond to their citizens’ adaptation needs, and build their resilience, working with a large range of partners and stakeholders. GCF has a strong commitment to supporting countries and entities in the transformational changes that are needed now, to adapt, survive, and thrive in a fast-changing world.
