Key lessons for policymakers: developing Climate Change Financing Frameworks
A new OPM briefing note outlines how Climate Change Financing Frameworks (CCFF) can help integrate climate change into standard planning and budgeting processes.
The gap between those measures actually put in place to adapt to climate change and what is required to achieve a socially-acceptable level of adaption is generally quite large, particularly in low-income countries. This new note shows how this ‘adaptation gap’ can be addressed using a CCFF approach, highlighting key lessons learned from implementing frameworks in a number of countries in South Asia.
Allan Duncan, principal consultant at Oxford Policy Management and co-author of the note, said:
‘Our experience with the Climate Proofing Growth and Development programme shows that CCFFs can be a useful tool for starting the processes of mainstreaming climate change issues into national planning and budgeting practices. This, in turn, can help to mobilise funds for adaptation measures, and minimise the impacts of a changing climate on wider growth and development.’
By drawing on experiences from project work across the South Asia region, the note provides a practical guide for policymakers and development practitioners alike.
