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).
