Action Pledge 2

The Adaptation Partnership organizes regional workshops to convene stakeholders involved in the scaling up of adaptation efforts to highlight regional priorities and gaps, identify opportunities for enhanced cooperation, and share lessons learned.  In 2010, the partnership held one Iberoamerican workshop.  By 2011, workshops were held on topics including: mainstreaming adaptation into development planning, adaptation and disaster risk reduction, adaptation and climate services, knowledge development regarding climate scenarios, glacial lake management for the Andes and Himalayas, and climate smart agriculture. In 2012, workshops are being planned around regional priorities including coastal zone management, systematized climate monitoring, and more cliamte resilient agriculture.
