Policy and institutional reforms to support climate change adaptation and mitigation in development programs: A practical guide

This 'toolkit', published by the World Bank, provides policy advice on how to integrate climate change adaptation strategies into development programs.

It gives an overview of climate change impacts in developing countries and identifies the main channels through which development programs can cost-effectively adapt to climate change and reduce greenhouse gases. The authors identify individual development policies and suggest ways of incorporating mitigation and adaptation measures. They also provide lists of desirable climate outcomes alongside the specific policies needed, by type and sector, to achieve them.
