The Adaptation Finance Gap Report analyzes the gap between the conditions required to achieve the goals in adaptation to global climate change -that is, the adjustments to reduce the potential damage of its effects and take advantage of the opportunities and the resources available for it. It is important to note that Latin America and the Caribbean, due to their high level of urbanization, environmental degradation, climate-sensitive economies, poverty levels, among others, make the region more vulnerable to the dangers posed by climate change. The first report analyzed the gap at the level of knowledge, technology and financing.
