Abstract

Adaptation to climate change has always been part of life on earth. Yet,
according to the scientific literature – such as the Fifth Assessment Report
of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – the increased
magnitude of global warming the planet is currently experiencing further
exacerbates the negative impacts of climate change on people – increasing
risk and reducing their capacity to adapt. This is particularly the case for
marginalised people in the Global South living in poverty (IPCC 2014).
Wide recognition that industrialised countries are overwhelmingly responsible
for these changes has, albeit slowly, led to governments of industrialised
countries increasingly financing climate change adaptation
initiatives in the Global South.
