    Abstract

    This report examines the challenge of adequately addressing adaptation to climate change impacts in developing counties by means of international collaboration, and the reasons why it is in the interest of industrialised countries, including the EU, to do so. This is a topic that has been gaining prominence on the agenda of the international climate change negotiations under the auspices of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) as well as in other international forums. After analysing different approaches to the problem of adapting to climate change and reviewing current efforts to adapt to climate change, the report puts forward a range of options. The lead author, Sivan Kartha is Senior Scientist at the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI). Preety Bhandari is a researcher at The Energy & Resource Institute (TERI), New Delhi. Louise Van Schaik is a Fellow at the Netherlands Institute of International Relations 'Clingendael' in The Hague. Deborah Cornland is Director of the Climate Change Policy Research Programme (CLIPORE) at the Swedish foundation MISTRA. And Bo Kjellén is Senior Research Fellow at the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI).
