RT 7 Adaptation Forum: adaptation  under the UNFCCC after the Paris Agreement

 Thursday 12 May, 13.45 – 15.30, Town Hall

The Adaptation Forum is organised by the Adaptation Committee, the overall advisory body on adaptation to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to reach out to stakeholders and gather new insights, knowledge and experiences on adaptation action and support. The goal of this Adaptation Forum is two-fold:

  • To inform conference participants of the adaptation aspects of the Paris Agreement; and
  • To receive input from participants on tasks under the Paris Agreement where the Adaptation Committee has a clear role

Input received from participants will help in shaping the future adaptation regime under the UNFCCC and inform Parties’ planning, implementing and evaluating of adaptation actions and support.
