The Adaptation Fund (AF) was established under the Kyoto Protocol of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in order to finance concrete adaptation projects and programmes in developing countries affected by the global climate change. This report summarises the key decisions taken during the 19th meeting (December 11 to 14) of the Adaptation Fund Board.
More detailed information about the Adaptation Fund is available on the Germanwatch website (www.germanwatch.org/klima/af). Germanwatch has also established a NGO Network to help NGOs in developing countries to better accompany the implementation of projects funded by the Adaptation Fund (see www.af-network.org). The background information and preparatory documents of the 19th meeting are also available at https://www.adaptation-fund.org/afb-meeting/3496
