This manual reviews options for international financing of adaptation activities and projects in developing countries. It examines both public and private sources of funding and presents the most important technical criteria and concepts used by public donors and private financiers in evaluating proposals. In particular, it provides a number of concrete tools and recommendations to help interested countries, such as: an overview of international public funding sources dedicated to adaptation investments, seven fundamental eligibility criteria for accessing international public funding and guidance on how to apply these concepts to project ideas, a template for developing/presenting adaptation project ideas to international donors; and an overview of critical concepts and requirements for accessing private financing for adaptation and a number of instructive case studies.
