Durban Forum on Capacity-building
The Durban Forum on Capacity-building is an annual, in-session event organized under the auspices of the
SBI that brings together stakeholders involved in building the capacity of developing countries to mitigate
and adapt to climate change.
Its meetings are a means to improve the monitoring and review of the effectiveness of capacity-building
within the intergovernmental climate change process. Because of capacity-building’s cross-cutting
nature, information on related activities tends to be fragmented and not readily available. The Durban
Forum attempts to fill in the information gaps by providing an overview of the capacity-building support
being provided to developing countries.
