A paper discussing why adaptation planning should be prioritised at the upcoming COP15 meeting in Copenhagen

2009 Available in English

Tearfund believes that adaptation to the impacts of climate change on those nations most affected by it must remain a top-level priority in the upcoming international negotiations for a post-2012 deal. A global 'Adaptation Framework' will help international commitments to deal with future and current impacts of climate change. This framework is especially urgent for the top 100 most vulnerable countries.

This paper discusses the current strategy for adaptation planning and proposes a new framework that puts the following front and centre:

  • Funds should be put towards immediate needs in the least developed countries.
  • Adaptation planning must be prioritised at a local and national level.
