Infopoint Lunchtime Conference: Financing adaptation at the local level

Infopoint Lunchtime Conference: Financing adaptation at the local level

LoCAL helps countries set up national mechanisms to integrate climate change adaptation into local governments’ planning and budgeting systems, increase awareness and response to climate change at the local level, and increase the amount of finance available to local governments for climate change adaptation.

LoCAL combines performance-based climate resilience grants, which ensure programming and verification of climate change expenditures at the local level, with technical and capacity building support.

It uses the demonstration effect to trigger further flows for local adaptation, including national fiscal transfers and global climate finance for local authorities, through their central governments.
