As adaptation moves from theory to practice, there is a need to select,
prioritise and implement adaptation interventions. At the same time, as
DfID starts to finance large adaptation programmes, there is a need to
ensure Value-for-Money (VfM). However, the identification and appraisal
of options, and the identification of VfM adaptation, are challenging.
To provide support for these challenges, DFID has produced information
notes on early adaptation and value for money, including:
The aim of this toolkit is to help DFID advisers to design adaptation
projects or portfolios that maximise VFM.
The Toolkit is a word based document, structured around the six steps in
the adaptation policy cycle. For each step it provides relevant context
and support, potentially useful sources of information, case study
application and examples. It therefore provides potentially useful
information for concept notes and business cases.
