This report has been produced by a team of consultants for the UK Department for International Development (DFID) Adaptation Knowledge and Tools programme and published through Evidence on Demand.
The Adaptation Knowledge and Tools programme is a DFID-funded programme intended to maximise the effectiveness of UK and international investment in climate change adaptation and resilience. The knowledge and tools generated through this programme are expected to promote greater understanding of what constitutes best practice in adaptation, as well as better international cohesion and coordination around adaptation. Through these entry points the programme expects to increase the quality of international and UK adaptation programming and reduce its risk.
The UK has provided funding of £310 million in total to the Pilot programme for Climate Resilience (PPCR); the adaptation focused Climate Investment Fund. The PPCR supports nine pilot countries (Bangladesh, Nepal, Cambodia, Bolivia, Niger, Tajikistan, Yemen, Mozambique and Zambia) and two regions (Pacific and Caribbean) to ‘transform to a climate resilient development path, consistent with national poverty reduction and sustainable development goals’.
The objective of this short study was to assess and compare the effectiveness of national arrangements for establishing and implementing PPCR programmes (each pilot country’s Strategic Programme for Climate Resilience: SPCR). The work of the consultancy and the content of the final report are briefly outlined.
