Participants will receive draft guidance to monitor the implementation of their TAPs. The draft methodology will be discussed and tested with a view to produce a final version to be considered by the Technology Executive Committee at its fiftheenth meeting in September 2017.
- Explore the adaptation potential of the TNAs, seeking for synergies of the TNA and national adaptation planning processes of developing countries. Countries‘ experiences in using adaptation technologies in adaptation planning and the opportunities to benefit from prioritizing adaptation technologies in the TNA process will be showcased.
