This report explores the state of finance for climate adaptation. And it proposes practical near-term solutions to both fill knowledge gaps and increase investment, particularly in developing countries. The authors identify context, business model, and internal capacity barriers to adaptation measures. And they advocate for increasing demand for adaptation services, scaling-up of service providers and derisking adaptation investment.
