- DocumentDeutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH, 2013Tropical coastal areas are highly vulnerable to climate change. Coastal ecosystems can support the adaptation of both human and natural systems but only if they are sustainably managed. The conservation, restoration or sustainable management of ecosystems to provide ecosystem services that help people adapt to climate change is known as ‘ecosystem-based adaptation’ (EbA).Document
The role of human rights in climate change adaptation: evidence from civil society in Cambodia and KenyaDanish Institute for International Studies, 2014Inconsistent climate change policies increase the vulnerability of marginalised populations and lead to resource conflicts. A human rights-based approach can help protect the adaptive capacities of climate vulnerable populations.DocumentFride, 2015Many climate experts agree that the Sahel is a key hotspot for global climate change. Throughout the region, higher temperatures, increasingly variable rainfall, and more frequent droughts and storms will interact with high levels of vulnerability and low adaptive capacities to significantly challenge continued development progress.DocumentDanish Institute for International Studies, 2015The Government of Zambia is making important progress in establishing a national framework for climate change adaptation. However, there is a need for more attention to the crucial role of district level institutions such as Local Government, local sector agencies and NGOs.DocumentInternational Institute for Environment and Development, 2015As the largest pot of climate funding available to developing countries, the Green Climate Fund (GCF) holds huge promise. As it enters into operation, national institutions, including government, can apply to access GCF’s resources ‘directly’.Document
Decentralized climate change responses in Uganda: climate change adaptation lacks local government fundingDanish Institute for International Studies, 2015Local governments in Uganda are the most appropriate level for implementing national climate change adaptation and mitigation policies. They provide the best institutional interface between local people’s aspiration and international investments, national policies and civil society initiatives.DocumentInternational Institute for Environment and Development, 2015As climate change pushes livestock, crop and tree production systems towards new realities, societies may seek more comprehensive solutions.DocumentInternational Institute for Environment and Development, 2015Research and evidence show that women and men are vulnerable to climate change to varying degrees, and that they experience and respond to it in different ways. Policies and actions that overlook the gendered impacts of and responses to climate change yield inequitable outcomes and exacerbate existing gender inequalities.DocumentInternational Institute for Environment and Development, 2015While there is wide-ranging debate about how to mobilise financial resources for developing countries, much more policy attention must be focused on how to get these resources into the hands of poor people who need them most.Document
Delivering climate and development finance to the poorest: intermediaries that ‘leave no-one behind’International Institute for Environment and Development, 2015Efforts to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and implement the Paris climate change agreement will fail if finance does not reach the poor women and men who need it most. Intermediaries that channel climate or development finance to these groups will therefore be crucial.
