Accessing international funding for climate change adaptation: a guidebook for developing countries

This guidebook is intended to be a starting point for developing country governments, planners and stakeholders who are carrying out technology needs assessments (TNAs) and technology action plans (TAPs) for adaptation to climate change. It reviews both public and private sources funding for climate change adaptation and presents the most important technical criteria and concepts used by public donors and private financiers in evaluating proposals. The guidebook provides a number of concrete tools and recommendations that will help TNA countries identify and access funding to implement their TAPs, such as: an overview of international public funding sources; seven fundamental eligibility criteria for accessing international public funding and guidance on how to apply these concepts to project ideas; a template for developing/presenting adaptation project ideas to international donors; and an overview of key concepts and requirements for accessing private financing for adaptation.
