Export citation

Key messages

  • Understanding adaptation-mitigation linkages helps identify co-benefits and reduce negative interactions between the two climate change domains.
  • Barriers include working in institutional siloes and lack of information: adaptation actors are not well-informed about mitigation actions and vice-versa.
  • Policy network analysis sheds light on adaptation-mitigation actor interactions and what can be done to improve them.
  • It reveals both the usual and unusual suspects who can foster linkages between the two domains.
  • This InfoBrief summarizes the findings of a climate change policy network analysis conducted in Peru and published in the journal Climate Policy (Locatelli et al. 2020).
