To encourage investment in climate adaptation projects, The Higher Ground Foundation created the Vulnerability Reduction Credit, or VRCTM an economic measure of the effects of projects in reducing climate change vulnerability. VRCs can be used for M&E, prioritizing investments, and when priced may leverage finance. The Higher Ground Foundation advises policymakers, funders, and vulnerable communities on how to use VRCs to deploy adaptation technologies, design viable adaptation planning systems with VRCs, and co-develop pilot projects that validate VRCs as an investment instrument.

Agriculture and forestry
Although being a vital sector, agriculture contributes significantly to climate change through greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, agriculture is highly exposed to climate change, as farming activities directly depend on climatic conditions. Climate change also increases forest disturbances and occurrence of invasive species. CTCN brings together stakeholders to provide technical assistance to mitigate and adapt to these change, through a combination of well-established and innovative technologies. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.
