Exploring the conflict blind spots in climate adaptation finance

A Research project by FUTUREPROOF-IDEAS
September 2021

Commissioned by Mercy Corps and the Overseas Development Insitute (ODI) for the FCDO funded SPARC programme.

This report examines whether climate adaptation programmes have been conflict-sensitive in fragile and conflict-affected regions, and the barriers to increasing adaptation finance to these contexts. The analysis is based on an analysis of donors’ approaches to conflict sensitivity in the Sahel and Horn of Africa – a region with a large concentration of highly climate-vulnerable and conflict-affected countries – and a synthesis of findings from the application of such approaches to climate adaptation investments in Mali, Somalia and Sudan.
