Title

WeADAPT: Collaborating on Climate Adaptation

Partner Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI)

Date of submission 01/12/2007

Description

SEI Action pledge

The SEI is leading collaboration to develop a platform for climate adaptation, called weADAPT. The weADAPT platform bridges emerging experiences in developing countries with the Nairobi Work Programme. As both the weADAPT platform and the Nairobi work programme take shape, it is an opportune time to develop close collaboration with the UNFCCC.

The platform provides the opportunity to widen geographical coverage and deepen the level of understanding across the spectrum of adaptation advice. The collective platform can bring a large number of contributors and partners together to shape new, innovative and practical tools, and to build competence through learning by doing.
