Climate Proofing is a technical option for adaptation, which aims at maintaining the capacity of a system to function while the climate changes, ensuring the sustainability of investments (UNDP, 2010).  It has the purpose of reduce climate risks to acceptable levels, through the incorporation of long lasting and environmentally friendly changes, which are economically viable and socially acceptable in one or more of the stages of the project cycle (Asian Development Bank, 2005).
