Education and training, public participation and youth to enhance adaptation action
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 will seek 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. Each year topics of particular relevance to Parties and non-Party stakeholders will be addressed.
The topic for the 2020 TEP-A is "Education and training, public participation and youth to enhance adaptation action".
The 2020 TEP-A will take place over several months, with events and related activities beginning in June and concluding in October with a wrap-up event. It will include creative ideas for policy briefs and case studies, video messages, virtual talks and workshops, art competitions and more.
