Adaptation Committee - Means of implementation
 
 
Providing information and recommendations for guidance on means to incentivize the implementation of adaptation actions, including finance, technology and capacity-building
 

One of the agreed functions of the Adaptation Committee (AC) through which it shall promote the implementation of enhanced action on adaptation is the provision of information and recommendations, drawing on adaptation good practices, for consideration by the COP when providing guidance on means to incentivize the implementation of adaptation actions. In its initial three-year workplan the AC elaborated the activities it would undertake regarding technical support and guidance to Parties on means of implementation.

In 2013 the AC has invited regional institutions and United Nations agencies supporting work on adaptation to communicate their current support for adaptation in developing countries and summarized the inputs received into an pdf-icon information paper .

In 2014 the AC has started preparatory work for a workshop on the means of implementation for enhanced adaptation action which took place from 2 to 4 March 2015. The workshop brought together relevant bilateral, regional and multilateral institutions facilitating the means of implementation, as well as development agencies at the country level, to discuss how to further promote the implementation of enhanced action in a coherent manner under the Convention. Representatives of the TEC, the SCF, the GCF Board, the Adaptation Fund Board and the Global Environment Facility were also invited. The AC will use the outcomes of the workshop as well as other relevant information, including the outcomes of the workshop on monitoring and evaluation of adaptation, to provide guidance on means of implementation of adaptation actions and recommendations for consideration by the COP.

The list below shows the background documents on the above issues that the AC has considered during its meetings. These documents served as input to the discussion and show evolution of the discussions to-date.
