This guidance document explores the costs of meeting adaptation needs and assesses the funding that is available for meeting those needs. The report suggests that although international public funding for adaptation has increased in recent years, the previous assessments of the costs of adaptation have involved significant underestimates. This leaves a gap – the adaptation finance gap – which is needed to be filled in order to achieve the ambitions of the Paris Agreement.
