What is effective climate adaptation? Case studies from the Least Developed Countries

Sejal Patel, Binyam Yakob Gebreyes

Issue paper, 29 pages

Adaptation is an investment that becomes effective over time through learning. International climate talks are serving as a key platform for bridging such learning. The LDCs, from the frontlines of climate impacts, are pioneering large-scale and innovative adaptation responses. This issue paper draws from experiences in the international dialogues and of LDC national practice to explore how the adaptation narrative is developing at both levels. It examines where they are aligned, and where they clash, in influencing adaptation scope and delivery. Some key lessons that we can learn from the LDC Group are highlighted.
