Adapting to the impacts of climate change

The consequences of climate change can be felt around the world. Extreme weather events such as: flooding, hurricanes and heatwaves, are heavily impacting some countries and populations who lack resources to mitigate these disasters.

Through its funding area ‘Adapting to the impacts of climate change’, International Climate Initiative (IKI) is supporting vulnerable countries and regions to strengthen their adaptability to the consequences of climate change. 

While focusing primarily on ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) and national adaptation plans (NAPs), the funding area also encompasses other topics such as instruments for the risk management of extreme climate-related events and community-based adaptation to the impacts of climate change (CBA). Approaches related to this adaptation, for example in the sectors of agriculture and land usage, urban development, sustainable financing and private enterprise, are also supported by IKI projects.

By 2020, over 135 projects had been approved within the area of adaptation to climate change impacts.
