Time to adapt: Insights from adaptation to climate change

Source(s):  Global Environment Facility (GEF)

Uncertainty about future climate creates challenges in both adaptation planning and evaluation. Defining and determining success in adaptation therefore can be difficult. This publication, however, does not attempt to address all of the issues and concerns regarding adaptation. The case studies included in this document, were instead structured around a few basic questions:

  • What were the key challenges encountered, including failures?
  • What were they key solutions, and factors considered critical for achieving success, even where "success" is tentative at this stage?
  • What next steps would the authors recommend for the project?

They further highlight the substantial adaptation knowledge generated by a wide range of stakeholders. One of the most important insights emerging from gathering the case studies is the importance of providing opportunities for project designers, implementers, executors, beneficiaries, and others to contemplate and share their experiences in adaptation, in order to maximize the benefits from the knowledge that is emerging from their respective efforts.
