About

This site will provide practitioners and others with best practices, news articles, links to resources, opportunities for sharing experiences, and more. With the Climate Finance Ready website, the Fund and CDKN aim foster ongoing dialogue and collaboration in climate finance readiness.

The partnership website is a key part of the Adaptation Fund’s Readiness Programme for Climate Finance, which helps strengthen the capacity of national and regional entities to receive and manage direct access climate financing as they adapt and build resilience to changing climate conditions in sectors ranging from agriculture and food security to coastal zones and urban areas. The Fund’s direct access modality enables national and regional entities to directly access financing and manage all aspects of climate adaptation and resilience projects, from design through implementation and monitoring.

The Adaptation Fund finances projects and programmes that help vulnerable communities in developing countries adapt to the negative effects of climate change. Initiatives are based on the country needs, views and priorities. The Fund has accredited sixteen national and four regional implementing entities, and has allocated US$ 265 million to climate adaptation activities in forty-four countries. The World Bank serves as trustee of the Adaptation Fund on an interim basis.

CDKN helps support decision-makers in developing countries to design and deliver climate compatible development. It does so through technical assistance, research and knowledge-sharing. This includes building capacity and sharing experience on climate finance readiness.
