Technical Expert Meeting on Adaptation (TEM-A)
The technical examination process on adaptation (TEP-A) was established at COP 21 as part of the enhanced action prior to 2020 in the decision adopting the Paris Agreement. The TEP-A seeks to identify concrete opportunities for strengthening resilience, reducing vulnerabilities, and increasing the understanding and implementation of adaptation actions. The process is organized by the SBSTA and SBI and conducted by the Adaptation Committee. Volunteer organizations are invited to lead the organization of relevant technical expert meetings.
Each year topics of particular relevance to Parties and non-Party stakeholders are addressed.
The topic for the 2019 TEP-A is "Adaptation finance, including the private sector".
As part of the TEP-A, a technical expert meeting on adaptation (TEM-A) is being organized at SB 50, taking place on Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 May in the Chamber Hall of WCCB.
