- Integrated planning: prioritisation happens in the plan/budget, against a frame
- No guff and gloss: base decisions on hard analysis and avoid climate waffle
- No stranding: climate funds should not take actions out of the plan/budget
- Climate fund chaos: use climate funds for studies and capacity-building
- Business: estimating the impact of CC risks on your business and investment opportunities
- Ministries of Finance: systems for rigorous appraisal and budget scoring
- Line Ministries: designing adaptation and mitigation actions and obtaining funds
