Summary:This background paper presents the rationale for a CCAA learning forum on the linkages between adaptation and poverty reduction. It attempts to present the current state of knowledge about the nexus between climate change adaptation and poverty reduction, grounded in current methods of evaluating adaptation. Finally, it identifies gaps that the forum will address and the approaches to be used. This is a working paper that should evolve with the forum and with the inputs of participants.
