Call for submissions to Parties and non-Party stakeholders on the Adaptation Committee (AC) and Least Developed Countries Expert Group (LEG) mandates stemming from decision 1/CP.21
 
The AC and the LEG held an informal joint meeting in Bonn on 27 May 2016 to discuss an approach for responding to the mandates provided to them by the Conference of the Parties (COP) at its twenty-first session. During the meeting, the AC and LEG agreed to use a variety of means, including issuing a call for submissions from Parties and non-Party stakeholders, to gather information relevant to the mandates. Eventually such information would enable to AC and the LEG to develop a limited set of options for considerations by Parties.

The AC and the LEG are very much looking forward to receiving technical information by 31 January 2017 (extended deadline) at the latest, based where possible on practical experience, to help them in fulfilling the Paris mandates.

Please find the information submitted by Parties  HERE  and by non-Party stakeholders HERE .
