Abstract

This paper provides a general overview of the UNFCCCs approach to adaptation, and then conducts a case study of adaptation efforts in Bangladesh. Based on the results of the case study and drawing on existing literature, the paper considers to what extent the current approach under the UNFCCC is likely to be effective, and how UNFCCC adaptation efforts might be strengthened.
