Open-access research published in PLOS Climate highlights the importance of aligning investments in food, land, and water systems to reduce the risk of compound crises seen across the globe. The study emphasises the need to evaluate existing financing mechanisms for their potential to create synergies between social protection, peace, inclusion objectives, and climate resilience outcomes. The international architecture of climate change mitigation, adaptation policy, and financing can potentially address development outcomes and multiple risk drivers if agendas align. To achieve coherence, it is essential to align timeframes, planning and targeting, as well as institutional arrangements and partnerships. By doing so, climate finance can contribute significantly to preventing crises and promoting sustainable development.
