This guidebook reviews options for international financing of adaptation activities and projects in developing countries. It examines both public and private sources of funding and presents the most important technical criteria and concepts used by public donors and private financiers in evaluating proposals.
The primary aim of this guidebook is to provide countries participating in the Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) Project with practical guidance that will help them secure financing for adaptation technology transfer project profiles identified in their Technology Action Plans (TAPs).Identifying and prioritizing technologies, and developing project ideas, is the first step towards successfully implementing TAPs.
New external funding is often needed in sectors as varied as agriculture, water management, coastal zone management, health, infrastructure, disaster risk management and ecosystem management. While funding for implementing TAPs is increasingly available through international sources, accessing this funding can be challenging; going from project ideas to ‘fundable’ proposals is a major constraint for many TNA countries.
