This report is part of an international pilot project on climate adaptation finance tracking. The project engaged civil society organisations in 6 developing countries (Ghana, Uganda, Ethiopia, Nepal, Vietnam, and Philippines) to assess multilateral and bilateral international support for climate change adaptation.
The project aims to assess if multilateral and bilateral donors’ reporting of adaptation finance is reliable, in the sense that the amounts reported are reasonably accurate. The project further investigates if the supported adaptation activities are targeting the poorest and most climate vulnerable parts of the population, and if the activities are gender sensitive.
The report covers 18 financial flows from 2013-2017, including the 10 largest projects tagged as climate-relevant in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Development Assistance Committee (OECD-DAC) database, and the 8 largest projects that are intuitively related to adaptation, mostly from Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs).
This report based on an initial analysis of climate adaptation projects implemented in the country. The study was carried out by a team of researchers from the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC), Assistance and Cooperation for Community Resilience and Development (ACCORD) Inc. and CARE in the Philippines.
