One of the agreed functions of the Adaptation Committee (AC) is to provide technical support and guidance to the Parties, respecting the country-driven approach, with a view to facilitating the implementation of adaptation activities, including those listed in decision 1/CP.16, paragraphs 14 and 15.

In order to carry out this function the AC has included the following activities in its workplan:

  • The organization of a workshop on the monitoring and evaluation of adaptation, building on and contributing to existing related processes. Further information on the workshop including the final report can be found here.
  • The compilation and updating of a list of regional centres and networks working on adaptation with a view to strengthening their role in supporting country-driven adaptation actions (see under Regional centres and networks)
  • The establishment of an ad hoc group, in collaboration with relevant organizations and experts, to propose modalities to facilitate technical backstopping for projects for Parties upon request. This group was established as an ad-hoc group on technical support and its pdf-icon terms of reference were agreed at AC 5.
  • Consideration of the work resulting from the outcomes of the work programme on loss and damage.
  • The organization of a workshop on best practices and needs of local and indigenous communities together with the Nairobi Work Programme. More information on the workshop including the final report can be found here.
  • The organization of an expert meeting on promoting livelihoods and economic diversification to build resilience in the context of planning, prioritizing and implementing adaptation actions. This meeting was held from 7 to 8 September 2015.
