Over the past decade, the GEF has financed a pioneering, global portfolio of adaptation projects and programs in over 124 countries with grant resources amounting to $1.18 billion. These interventions are reducing the vulnerability of people, livelihoods, physical assets and natural systems to the adverse effects of climate change across key vulnerable sectors, including agriculture, water resources management, infrastructure, and health. This publication lays out the new programming strategy for the July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2018 period. Building on the GEF’s solid experience in financing climate change adaptation, the Strategy presents the programming priorities for the next four years.
