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:
- A Report on Early VfM Adaptation
- An Early VfM Adaptation Toolkit
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.
This report has been produced by Global Climate Adaptation Partnership (GCAP) for Evidence on Demand with the assistance of the UK Department for International Development (DFID) contracted through the Climate, Environment, Infrastructure and Livelihoods Professional Evidence and Applied Knowledge Services (CEIL PEAKS) programme, jointly managed by HTSPE Limited and IMC Worldwide Limited.
