Ornasaran Manuamorn, UNU-MERIT

Local communities in developing countries are facing a disproportionate burden in adapting to the negative impacts of climate change.There is an international consensus that developed countries will help finance climate change adaptation in developing countries, including by directing part of the resources of multilateral climate funds to support locally driven and innovative adaptation actions at the community level. This dissertation explores whether the governance arrangements through which recipient developing countries access such financing influence if and how financial resources are invested in community-focused and innovative adaptation projects.
