Climate Change Adaptation Project Preparation Facility for Asia and the Pacific (ADAPT Asia-Pacific)

USAID ADAPT Asia-Pacific assisted eligible Asian and Pacific countries in gaining improved access to finance for climate change adaptation. ADAPT Asia-Pacific established a facility that provided a combination of technical assistance, capacity building and networking related to accessing climate change adaptation financing. USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific also worked with regional, international and U.S. partners to share and replicate best practices among national and local stakeholders.  In partnership with the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii, ADAPT Asia-Pacific developed an Urban Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience (UCCAR) training course to improve climate change knowledge among mid- to senior-level managers working in urban and infrastructure planning and, in turn, helped them design better adaptation projects.
