Background
 

At its 40th sessions, the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) invited the Adaptation Committee (AC) in collaboration with the Least Developing Countries Expert Group (LEG) to organize a workshop (see document FCCC/SBI/2014/8, para. 106) drawing upon experts and practitioners at different levels to share experiences, good practices, lessons learned, gaps and needs on the process to formulate and implement national adaptation plans, to be held prior to SBI 42.

Furthermore, the Conference of the Parties (COP), at its 20th session (December 2014), decided to explore options for enhancing reporting related to the process to formulate and implement national adaptation plans (NAPs) as part of this workshop (see decision 3/CP.20, para. 8).
