Adaptation Partnership (AP)



At the Petersberg Ministerial Climate Dialogue in May 2010, Costa Rica, Spain, and the United States identified a need for catalysing adaptation actions. The three countries took on the role of chairing a global Adaptation Partnership. Since then, over 50 developing and developed countries have participated in the Partnership to identify common adaptation priorities and improve regional coordination of efforts to scale up action and financing for adaptation.
