This background paper feeds into the adaptation component for the DFID International Climate Fund (ICF) strategy. It attempts to synthesise the evidence base relating to the co-benefits between adaptation and mitigation, and to those between adaptation and development. Some of the generic co-benefits and co-costs potentially associated with adaptation activities in relation to mitigation and development are outlined for human health, resilient agriculture, disaster risk reduction, and sustainable forestry and ecosystem services.
