Mainstreaming Adaptation to Climate Change in Least Developed Countries (LDCs)

Adaptation to climate change has become an important policy priority in international climate change negotiations, but has yet to become a major policy issue in developing countries, especially the LDCs, which have contributed least to greenhouse gases but are most vulnerable to climate change and have the least capacity to adapt. Experience from two LDCs, Bangladesh and Mali, shows that although much has been achieved in terms of describing and analysing vulnerability to climate change and identifying potential adaptation options, there remains much more to be done to mainstream adaptation to climate change within the national policymaking processes in those countries.
