Review of Adaptation Action

Partner Adaptation Partnership (AP)

Date of submission 29/03/2012


Action Pledge 1

As part of our effort to catalyze effective adaptation action, the Adaptation Partnership commissioned a review of planned and existing adaptation activities in 12 sub-regions across Asia and the Pacific, Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. The review provides an inventory of regional and country-level adaptation activities and a summary of key adaptation priorities, based on documents like the UNFCCC’s National Adaptation Programs of Action and National Communications.  It identifies gaps and opportunities for scaling up and enhancing collaboration. It will also include technical papers on mainstreaming adaptation into development policies and planning tools, and strengthening adaptation communities of practice.
