4. Towards an Understanding of the Political Economy of the PPCR
by Fran Seballos and Sönke Kreft

Whilst an analysis of the PPCR is inseparable from wider discussion on adaptation finance, this article primarily focuses on the drivers and ideologies that shaped the PPCR governance and delivery structures. The core narrative of mainstreaming adaptation into development through a process of government centred policy reform challenges many principles of the UNFCCC process. Utilising the structures of International Financing Institutions as implementing agencies heightens this tension. The central idea that adaptation is about „proofing? development retains economic growth as the central focus of climate and development action and paves the way for the World Bank Group to take a central role in managing future climate finance flows. This drive by the Bank plays out in the exclusivity of the design process for the PPCR and through the implementation modalities which severely curtail opportunities for multi-stakeholder dialogue and thus the potential for development of broad country ownership of programmes.
