Information on observer participation

The AC looks forward to the active participation of observers in the implementation of its three-year work plan and recommends organizations to come prepared with concrete proposals of potential support to the Committee’s work.

The COP, by decision 2/CP.17, decided that the meetings of the Adaptation Committee shall be open to attendance by admitted observer organizations, except where otherwise decided by the Adaptation Committee, with a view to encouraging a balanced representation of observers from Annex I Parties and from non-Annex I Parties.
