Climate change can affect the efficiency with which development resources are invested and the eventual achievement of many development objectives. Hence the need for mainstreaming of climate change response measures in development initiatives. This chapter examines government- and donor-supported initiatives in each case study country. An analytical framework is developed to quantify exposure of development aid portfolios to climate risk using the Creditor Reporting System database, which provides standardised information on aid flows. This is followed by an analysis of high-level strategy documents, sectoral plans and project documents to assess the degree of attention being paid to climate change impacts and adaptation.
