Adaptation Fund Side Event
New strategic directions for enhancing adaptation finance ambition and impact
11 June 2022, 11:30 – 13:00 (CEST), Room Bonn
The Adaptation Fund serves the Paris Agreement by accelerating and enhancing the quality of adaptation action in developing countries. The Fund does so by supporting country-driven projects and programmes, innovation, and global learning and scaling up for effective adaptation. All of the Fund’s activities are designed to be gender-responsive, to build capacity and to reach and benefit the most vulnerable communities.
The Adaptation Fund is currently developing by October 2022 its second Medium-term Strategy (MTS) for the period 2023 to 2027. The Fund is doing so by building on the strategic framework and achievements of the first MTS (2018 – 2022) and further enhancing it with a view to consolidating the Fund’s comparative advantage and optimizing its impact.
This side event presents recent updates and trends in adaptation finance and showcases new strategic directions for enhancing the ambition and impact of adaptation finance, including the Adaptation Fund’s new Medium-term Strategy for the period 2023 – 2027.
The event will include high-level speakers to discuss the importance of adaptation finance at COP27 and trends from recent international climate finance gap reports and representatives from the Fund’s projects on the ground that are fostering Enhanced Direct Access and Locally-Led Action, as well as gender, youth and CSO voices.
