Climate Science Rationale for Adaptation @SB50

Summary

Climate Rationale provides an initial outline for the concept, methodology, data and other technical resources for enhancing the climate science basis of all Green Climate Fund (GCF) funded projects and activities. It describes the role of such climate scientific evidence in providing a rationale for transformative climate action.  It delineates the value chain through which climate science, data and products inform decisions to effectively address the risks and adapt to a changing climate.  It explores the climate science elements of a GCF climate rationale applicable to all GCF funded projects and activities, creating value beyond the GCF.  Finally, the note outlines how to facilitate the articulation of the climate science basis of the climate rationale for all GCF funded projects and activities, through the establishment of a platform for structured access, guidance and envisioned hands-on implementation support mechanism.
