Countries in Latin America and the Caribbean are working to ensure that they are well-positioned to implement adaptation.

Many have made use of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) Readiness programme to develop in-country governance and strengthen capacities for receiving finance. These efforts demonstrate a regional strategy toward broad participation, stakeholder coordination, and cross-sector planning that promotes transparency and accountability on adaptation.

This brief – based on a chapter in the forthcoming AdaptationWatch report – offers an analysis of how countries in the region are gearing up on adaptation governance and engaging with the GCF Readiness programme. It also sets out policy pointers for how countries can improve and develop these processes.
