Swedish development cooperation and climate change: Is there potential for better mainstreaming?

Adaptation decision making is complex. Uncertainy in climate change and other projections (e.g. socio-economic) needs to be recognised and accounted for. There may also be a number of synergies, trade offs and co-benefits (for example with climate change mitigation and the sustainable development goals) that need to be considered to achieve the most effective overal outcome. Identifying and reducing the risk of maladaptation should also play a key part in deciding which adaptation options are most suitable. The resources below provide examples of and guidance, tools and methods for managing and addressing uncertainty, and identifying and managing synergies, trade offs, co-benefits and potential for maladaptation. Questions to consider in this step include:​ What are the synergies, trade-offs and co-benefits that need to be considered? How can these be managed? In what formats do users prefer or need information on the benefits, synergies and trade-offs of different adaptation options?
