Shortlisting Climate Change Adaptation Projects

ORGANISER: USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific


September 2015

As governments find ways to minimize the increasing threat of climate change, and given limited financing available for climate change adaptation, they need to be able to prioritize adaptation projects and decide which of them should be funded first.

This document is the third publication in the USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific Adaptation Finance Knowledge Series. It includes an easy-to-use checklist and general criteria to help governments select climate change adaptation projects. This checklist is based on USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific’s work with India’s National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD).
