The technical examination process on adaptation was established by the Paris Agreement to promote enhanced action prior to 2020. The technical expert meetings (TEMs) on adaptation are at the core of this process.
In 2017, the TEMs will be focused on Integrating climate change adaptation with the Sustainable Development Goals and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The event is organised jointly by the Subsidiary Bodies, the Adaptation Committee and guided by the High Level Climate Champions.
The two-day event will involve the Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Ms. Patricia Espinosa, the High Level Climate Champions, Special Envoy H.E. Ms. Hakima El Haite (Morocco) and H.E. Minister Mr. Inia Seruiratu (Fiji), as well as high level representatives of the custodian organisations of the three processes, national policy-makers, implementers, investors from different regions and at different levels.
The umbrella topic for the 2016 TEP-A was ‘’Reducing vulnerability and mainstreaming climate change adaptation, including through the process to formulate and implement national adaptation plans”. Two events took place in 2016.
