Adaptation good practice checklist

Source(s):  Care Climate Change Information Centre

The checklist is for use in designing and deciding financial support to policy, projects, programmes and all other types of initiatives that focus on adaptation specifically or in which climate resilience is mainstreamed. The checklist and its use are described, including a practical scoring method for use in screening concepts, proposals and implementation plans for their incorporation of and compliance with adaptation good practices. The document presents the following nine practices that should feature in initiatives in order to qualify as adaptation to climate change:

  • Analyse climate risks, differential vulnerability and capacity of people, ecosystems and institutions;
  • Ensure participation, agency, transparency and inclusion of all groups;
  • Incorporate management of uncertainty and use of climate information;
  • Promote anticipatory, flexible and forward looking adaptation planning and decision making processes;
  • Promote innovation, local (including traditional and indigenous) knowledge and technology;
  • Ensure an integrated and holistic response with adaptive management of climate related risks and impacts over time;
  • Establish institutional arrangements and linkages which facilitate multi-stakeholder engagement;
  • Integrate learning, capacity building, monitoring and knowledge management processes;
  • Support ongoing and sustainable adaptation at scale.
