Regional Centres and Networks

Activity 6 of the Adaptation Committee's (AC's) work plan requested the secretariat to compile a list of regional centres and networks working on adaptation. The AC is making this list available as part of its work on ways to strengthen the roles of regional institutions and UN agencies in supporting enhanced adaptation action in developing countries. The AC has already received valuable information from regional centres and networks on their current support for adaptation, which has been synthesized into an information paper (see AC/2014/7).

At its fifth meeting the AC endorsed the initial list, which will be updated every six months. The AC further established a dedicated task force on technical support to propose modalities for providing support to Parties on adaptation, for consideration by the AC. The specific tasks for the group include analyzing existing support for adaptation action provided by regional institutions and UN agencies, including gaps, needs and opportunities. The group will further propose modalities to strengthen and enhance coherence of the provision of support to developing countries for activities related to adaptation.
