Adaptation Watch

AdaptationWatch is a growing partnership of organizations from across the world, aiming to raise governance standards for adaptation to climate change. AdaptationWatch partners combine cutting edge tools on tracking development finance with world class research, advocacy and capacity building. AdaptationWatch seeks to share information and work collaboratively with all organisations engaged in transparency and accountability, and climate change adaptation.


The impacts of climate change are falling disproportionately on the world’s poorest nations and peoples, who are often the least able to cope. International funding is critical for adapting to a changing climate and building resilient societies. However in many countries, access to information about the distribution and use of climate finance is severely limited, making it difficult to assess how effectively it is being used in tackling vulnerability and meeting local priorities, whilst the mechanisms for dispersing climate finance remain at risk of corrupt abuse, waste and mismanagement. Finance for adaptation is more effective when its use is transparent and accountable, both to donors and international observers, but especially to local stakeholders. AdaptationWatch aims to sharply improve the tracking of investments in climate adaptation and resilience, including social monitoring and documentation of spending to the local level, supporting meaningful assessment of its effectiveness.


  • Develop methods to track climate finance and assess its value in promoting greater transparency, accountability, integrity and ultimately effectiveness of climate finance at national and subnational levels.

  • Strengthen the capacities of local stakeholders to participate meaningfully in monitoring and tracking climate adaptation finance.
