Guiding Principles for Adaptation: South-South Cooperation, Practice and Legislation

Description:

The principles came out of a meeting with representatives from 35 countries designed to enhance the understanding of policy makers and legislators of mainstreaming climate change adaptation into development planning across sectors and explore opportunities for cooperation. They are based on an agreed need to establish a principled and flexible model of climate change adaptation in order to pursue the goals of increasing the resilience and adaptive capacity of societal and ecological systems. The principles reflect the four stages of successful adaptation: planning, implementation, evaluation and dynamic refinement.
