This paper builds on existing work to identify obstacles, including discussions convened by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the World Bank on climate action in conflict settings*. The recommendations in it are designed to guide policymakers in unlocking opportunities for contextualized and differentiated approaches to providing finance for climate-change adaptation in conflict settings.They were formulated on the basis of consultations with government officials; humanitarian, peacebuilding and development organizations; international financial institutions; operating entities under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) financial mechanism (the climate funds); and independent researchers and experts in the fields of climate finance and adaptation.
