Adaptation Committee - Regional centres and networks on adaptation
 


List of regional centres and networks on adaptation
 

Activity 6 of the Adaptation Committee's (AC’s) work plan requested the secretariat to compile a list of regional centres and networks working on adaptation. The AC is making this list available as part of its work on ways to strengthen the roles of regional institutions and UN agencies in supporting enhanced adaptation action in developing countries. The AC has already received valuable information from regional centres and networks on their current support for adaptation, which has been synthesized into an information paper (see pdf-icon AC/2014/7).

If your organization conducts works in the field of adaptation at a regional level, please email AC@unfccc.int, together with your contact details, in order to be included in this list.

At its fifth meeting the AC endorsed the initial list, which will be updated every six months. The AC further established a dedicated task force on technical support to propose modalities for providing support to Parties on adaptation, for consideration by the AC. The specific tasks for the group include analyzing existing support for adaptation action provided by regional institutions and UN agencies, including gaps, needs and opportunities. The group will further propose modalities to strengthen and enhance coherence of the provision of support to developing countries for activities related to adaptation
