This paper is the first of the Adaptation Briefing series under the NDC Support Cluster, which aims to provide concise and easy to digest information on key topics, relevant for projects working on climate change adaptation. The Briefings –  besides short thematic introductions –  offer well-selected references, which  provide a rich source of further knowledge and information on practical solutions and can help projects navigate adaptation process in their respective countries.

There is broad agreement that climate change represents a threat to sustainable development; consequently, development efforts must be resilient to the impacts of climate change and related disaster risks in order to be sustainable. Alignment is an underlying principle of international agendas such as the Paris Agreement, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and should guide the implementation of country- related policy processes. Thereby, coherence, efficiency and effectiveness of national policies can be increased.
