Video: Collaborative approaches to climate resilience at the heart of Adaptation Fund’s work

As the urgency of climate change has grown with increasing floods, droughts and intense storms around the world, the Adaptation Fund has been innovative in adapting to countries’ needs. A good example can be found in the Fund’s Programme of Regional Projects, which helps countries come together to address climate change impacts that cross borders. It has grown markedly since it began as a pilot in 2015, to more than 10 projects and a robust pipeline today.

In this video, Adaptation Fund officials, as well as implementing partners from the World Meteorological Organization and the Development Bank of Latin America discuss the programme’s benefits and examples of current Adaptation Fund-funded regional adaptation projects on the ground in Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda, and in Ecuador and Chile.
