Adaptation for developing countries in a post-2012 UN climate regime

Source(s):  World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF)

WWF global climate policy position paper:

This document reflects WWF’s policy recommendations for adaptation measures in a post-2012 UN climate regime. It highlights: (i) the importance of an ambitious, well-governed, proactive and fully-funded adaptation package; (ii) the five priority elements of a UNFCCC adaptation package; (iii) the key principles required to guide future adaptation implementation, and the need to strengthen the link between mitigation action taken now and adaptation costs in the future; (iv) the need to establish an Adaptation Action Framework (AAF) that addresses pro-active adaptation implementation, including risk and insurance, and compensation and rehabilitation components; and (v) the importance of healthy ecosystems and their vital role in increasing ecological and human resilience to the impacts of climate change.
