Document Summary

The Adaptation Fund Board is welcoming comments from the global public on its proposed Environmental and Social Policy.


Environmental and social safeguards are implicitly addressed in the Adaptation Fund’s technical review process for project/programme proposals. This policy aims to formalise the consideration and application of the safeguards in all climate adaptation activities financed by the Adaptation Fund. The policy will further clarify and streamline the safeguards requirements while strengthening the technical review process and the application of the safeguards throughout project/programme implementation.  


The proposed Environmental and Social Policy is available here.  


Please send any comments no later than 23 September 2013 via the contact form or by emailing the Adaptation Fund Board secretariat at
