The aim of the study was to fill knowledge gaps regarding the estimation of adaptation costs and to develop a concept towards comparing costs between developing countries. In the first part a conceptual approach is presented to estimate adaptation costs of various sectors. Based on a literature analysis, existing costs estimations regarding adaptation were identified and fields for potential advances explored. In the second part existing programs on the national level were assessed, followed by stock-taking of current political initiatives regarding adaptation financing.
