UNEP Adaptation Gap Report 2014
The first UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) Adaptation Gap Report is a preliminary assessment of global adaptation gaps in finance, technology and knowledge, and lays out a framework for future work on better defining and bridging these gaps. The report finds that, despite adaptation funding by public sources reaching $23-26 billion in 2012-2013, there will be a significant funding gap after 2020 unless new and additional finance for adaptation is made available. It was published to coincide with a crucial round of climate talks in Lima, Peru, December 2015.
