This perspective document discusses the economic and financial issues of adaptation to climate change in the water sector. It inventories and analyses the (inter)national adaptation funding instruments presently available and demonstrates that projected needs cannot be met with these instruments alone, while an overarching harmonized strategic financial framework, without which the benefits for the global environmental environment will remain suboptimal, is still lacking. The document therefore describes what other options for financing could be developed.
