Youth Engagement in Climate Change Adaptation: Lessons from the Adaptation Fund Portfolio of Projects and Programmes

Case Summary: 

This study provides an overview of youth participation in adaptation projects and interventions supported by the Adaptation Fund (AF). The study aims to understand the enabling factors, drivers and barriers to youth engagement in the AF portfolio. It is produced within the Learning and Sharing pillar of the Medium-Term Strategy (MTS) 2018-2022.

The study is based on the analysis of AF policies, the AF portfolio, and select case studies with active youth participation. It proposes several measures to support youth engagement in climate adaptation for consideration by the AF and its stakeholders. The results may interest AF stakeholders, including the Board, secretariat, Implementing Entities (IEs), Executing Entities (EEs), youth organizations and the AF NGO Network, as well as the general public interested in climate adaptation.
