Finding the Money

A Stock Taking of climate Change Adaptation Finance and Governance in Nepal

The amount of adaptation finance available to help developing countries adapt to climate change has increased dramatically since 2009. But where is the money going? How is the money being used? Is it reaching the local level to help the most vulnerable communities adapt to climate change? Understanding these questions is a critical part of ensuring the effectiveness of efforts to help people adapt to climate change. This report takes stock of climate change adaption finance committed to Nepal from public sources of international finance from 2009 to 2012. It concludes that more than 50% of the "adaptation finance" committed to Nepal by donor agencies are not relevant to adaptation at all.
