Adaption Fund Renewable CERs
What is the Adaptation Fund
The Adaptation Fund has been established by countries that ratified the Kyoto Protocol to finance concrete adaptation programmes in developing countries. Adaptation programmes are aimed to help countries fight the adverse impacts of climate change, such as draughts, floods, epidemics, loss of agricultural yields etc. Two per cent of Certified Emissions Reductions (CERs) issued for each Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project are allocated to the UN Adaptation Fund.

All CERs are generated by registered Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects, approved by the UN.
