Mainstreaming Climate Change Adaptation into Development Planning: A Guide for Practitioners

Description:

Efforts to mainstream climate change adaptation into national development planning are still at a relatively early stage in many countries, but it is crucial for Countries. The present guide addresses this need for integrating climate change adaptation considerations into the work of Poverty-Environment Initiative (PEI). Furthermore, by building on PEI lessons in the field of poverty-environment mainstreaming in general, the guide can provide useful insights to adaptation specialists interested in mainstreaming their efforts. This guide is, thus, designed to assist advocates and practitioners engaged in mainstreaming climate change adaptation. It should be seen as an invitation for mainstreaming specialists and adaptation experts to partner and bring added value to the overall endeavor.
