Institutional Arrangements

Institutional arrangements have critical importance for planning and implementation of adaptation and mitigation actions.

Institutional arrangements are, in fact, critical for any comprehensive adaptation action that countries are starting to embark on, such as in the context of the national adaptation plan (NAP) process.

Institutions at all levels need to build on what already exists and learn from experience, while at the same time working towards more streamlined action. Appropriate arrangements must consider all levels of government, sectors and societal domains in an approach that manages competing priorities and demand for resources.
