Follow the money: tracking Least Developed Countries’ adaptation finance to the local level
There is growing recognition that local organisations, people and communities need to lead or be meaningfully involved in the response to the climate, biodiversity and poverty crisis. The Least Developed Countries (LDCs) are leading a call for localising international climate adaptation finance, a crucial resource to support local actors and help developing countries respond to and prepare for worsening climate. This report investigates how feasible it is to track this finance to the local level in LDCs and considers what questions we must ask to address the prevailing transparency challenges that make it impossible to understand what progress is being made.
