This policy brief discusses climate impacts on the agricultural and tourism sectors in the Caribbean and the need for investment to build climate resilience. Climate impacts are already reversing economic growth, exacerbating poverty and undermining the future prosperity of Caribbean countries.

In the agricultural sector there is an especially urgent need to develop and disseminate adaptation prioritization tools given the prominence of the sector in INDCs to the Paris Climate Agreement.

Municipalities across Europe increasingly acknowledge the need to adapt to climate change and have begun to adopt various measures. Meeting the costs of adaptation measures for climate change is, however, a major challenge. Municipalities have found innovative ways to overcome that challenge and have started implementing measures.

This information brief discusses how policy and governance arrangements at the national level are vital for climate adaptation in the Caribbean. Local action is important but is insufficient in isolation. This report presents two tools, CCORAL and ARIA, to help address adaptation planning.

This topic guide looks at climate change governance and the political economy of climate policy development and implementation at the national scale. It aims to help donor agency staff better support country partners in implementing adaptive, equitable, effective and coherent policy. The report highlights national-level challenges.
