The History and Political Economy of Adaptation Aid



In order to understand better how adaptation aid is disbursed, we need to know where this new form of aid comes from, how it is related to development aid, and what the theoretical expectations for adaptation aid allocation are. This chapter addresses these questions and thus sets the stage for the empirical analyses later on.
