How PPCR supports ‘mainstreaming climate resilience’ in developing countries
As National Adaptation Planning processes are beginning to unfold in many countries, this paper draws on experiences of programs outside the UNFCCC such as Climate Investment Fund’s Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR). One of the key components of PPCR is to mainstream climate resilience development into development planning. The paper shares some early lessons from a cross-country assessment of experiences and trends in PPCR approaches in implementing its programmatic cycle, prioritisation of programs for mainstreaming, institutional strengthening, and supporting mainstreaming. These trends also give clear evidence that climate readiness of the countries and strength of institutional arrangements significantly influenced the way PPCR has approached different participating countries.
