The USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific Quick Guide to Climate Change Adaptation Funds is an easy to follow collection of 10 multilateral and bilateral climate funds and initiatives currently available for financing adaptation activities in developing countries.

Unlike other guides that provide lengthier descriptions, we have presented here only the need-to-know, essential bits of information. This Quick Guide provides key facts about individual funds, such as eligibility criteria, target areas, and, importantly, the mechanisms that will ultimately help you gain access and approval.

Developed by our team of climate finance experts, the Quick Guide includes “Tips by USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific” with bite-size, handy information on how to get your projects funded. These tips are based on our on-ground experience working with country officials, implementing agencies and fund managers.
